When you enter therapy, you give yourself a unique opportunity to explore your needs and feelings, and find new ways to meet the challenges in your life. A crucial ingredient for success lies in your relationship with your therapist. My approach is human, engaging and collaborative. We explore your feelings, reactions, and understanding of your relationships, and develop a deeper, sense of your needs, wishes, and how to fulfill your goals. I recognize that each person has unique emotional needs and struggles and I work actively to help you find new ways to understand, cope with, and resolve your concerns.

I have particular expertise in helping people faced with difficult life choices, including marital/parenting difficulties, career dilemmas, health concerns, and losses. People often seek me out to feel more vital and to live more authentically. I also treat young adults who need help finding a genuine direction for themselves.

I am a psychotherapist/psychoanalyst and Distinguished Scholar and Fellow of the National Academies of Practice, received the Simmons Distinguished Career Award and the National Institute for the Psychotherapies Educator's Award. My PhD is from Columbia, interned at Harvard, staff at Tufts, and faculty at Columbia, USC and Loyola.
