Announcement icon I am seeing patients via approved videoconferencing. Please contact me for more information.
I was born and raised in northern New Jersey and trained as a psychologist in New York City's hospitals, clinics, and schools. I obtained a doctorate from NYU and I now have over 30 years experience as a clinician. I have a diverse practice and have worked with several hundred children, adolescents, and adults. I am pleased to know that people experience me as a compassionate, thoughtful, and competent professional who approaches his life's work with a sense of humor.
I went on to obtain advanced postdoctoral training in Gestalt psychotherapy, a cutting edge approach to therapy, in New York, California, and abroad. As a doctoral level clinician, I also perform assessments of children and adults and provide testimony in various legal and educational settings.
As therapist, I am not the "authority" who solves problems; I and my patients work together to unravel meaning and enhance awareness to discover and create more effective, authentic choices. I support the resiliency of those in difficult situations and I'm honored to be a part of their journey!
