I see patients suffering from anxiety, depression, self-destructive patterns, relationship issues, sexual difficulties, identity, adjustment problems in psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, and couple's counseling. My aim is to relieve mental distress and interpersonal conflict by deepening self-understanding and self-control. After 32 years in practice, my clinical experience is broad and deep. My reputation and publications on relational, religious and ethical topics sometimes attracts patients with these difficulties. A graduate of Harvard University (MBA,PhD) and Washington Psychoanalytic Institute, I practice in Washington, DC.
I prefer "the talking cure" over medication, though I will refer for medication when indicated. In face-to-face therapy, I aim at identifying the unknown emotions/motivations that interfer with psychic health and reasonably good functioning in everyday life. I use the couch for psychoanalysis, but not for therapy.
I have a subspeciality working with college-age students and young adults. Patients in business tell me they find my background in business administration (I have an MBA) helps when it comes to working through career difficulties and in office relationships.
