I hope that you will feel comfortable in my pleasant and roomy office in Cresskill, NJ. Most of my patients are adults, but I do see mature adolescents as well as senior citizens. Patients have remarked to me that they feel they can talk to me because I respond to them, unlike other therapists they have seen. My approach is primarily a psychodynamic psychotherapy, but I utilize other approaches when appropriate. My patients will present with various symptoms and diagnoses, but I do not feel human beings fit neatly into diagnostic pigeonholes.

The most common complaints my patients have are depressive and anxious symptoms. I agree with the multiple good studies which show depressed psychiatric patients respond best to a combination of psychotherapy and medication treatment.

I have limited my practice by not participating in managed care contracts, primarily because these companies place limits and impediments to good psychiatric care. Almost all my patients have insurance and I am happy to submit claims for them for their out of network benefits.
