About

People are often unaware of, and frustrated by, the emotional and relational roadblocks that repeatedly thwart them. I work with you to clarify and understand these issues and their origins, to help you effect positive change. I believe that the self-understanding that catalyzes such change is best reached by cultivating a psychotherapeutic relationship in which compassionate, honest and constructive communication can occur. I strive to create an environment that encourages the development of empathic and reflective self-awareness, recognizes and fosters resilience, and promotes your optimal well-being.
I am trained as an Adult, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, and as an Adult Psychoanalyst. I specialize in combined psychotherapy and psychopharmacology treatment, psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. I work with you within a collaborative model that recognizes and optimizes your strengths and focuses on your individual needs.
I work with adults, adolescents, parents and children in combined psychotherapy / medication treatment. Areas of interest include depression, anxiety, relationship and parenting issues, childhood emotional and behavioral difficulties, and LGBT issues. ***My practice is currently full and am not accepting new patients--please check back for updates.***
