There is enormous opportunity to improve your life by understanding how the past has affected your current perceptions, thoughts, feelings, and actions. If you're feeling anxious or depressed, struggling in your relationships, or finding that your life, which appears to be okay from the outside, has left you unfulfilled, know that you can move past the pain, frustration, lack of direction, self-doubt. Beginning therapy can be daunting but immensely rewarding. There is no reason to settle for mediocrity or pain. However hard it might be to imagine now, post-traumatic growth is truly possible.
With 20+ years of clinical experience, I often see people who have achieved significant success (usually financial, professional, academic) but are struggling in others (usually relationships, mood, behaviors). I specialize in narcissism, sociopathy, psychopathy, and addiction—particularly in helping partners, children, and loved ones recover from trauma.
I was a Professor of Psychology at NYU's graduate school and at St. Louis University in Madrid, where I was also in private practice. A native New Yorker, I have lived in several cities in the US and Europe. I have a BA in Psychology from Dartmouth, Phi Beta Kappa.
