I am a clinical psychologist who has been practicing for about 25 years. I am very invested in the work I do and I believe my clients feel that from me. I work with people in a compassionate, nonjudgmental way. I am currently a candidate at the NYU Postdoctoral Program for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. My practice is on the Upper West Side and I am treating people in person and via telehealth. I see people for assessments, in individual therapy as well as couples therapy. I also am beginning some groups (see below).
I am open to working with a variety of issues. A lot of my work has been with people who misuse substances. I have also done a great deal of therapy and writing about gay men who use methamphetamine. I work with clients with mood disorders, relationship issues. However, I also work with LGBT clients.
I am very dedicated to my work and my clients feel my investment in them. I am open to feedback and our working collaboratively. New group: I am currently forming a new group for gay and bisexual men who want to address their substance use issues and the way they connect to identity, sex, internalized homophobia, and other issues.
