Psychoanalytic work is a journey taken by two people - the therapist and the patient. I think of psychoanalytic work as a voyage of discovery. Here is a safe place where you can stop, take your time, look, listen to yourself. A place to go when you feel stuck in your life. I have psychodynamic and multicultural perspectives to work with individuals with issues that maybe very specific - a relationship, a job, a developmental issue, repetitive thoughts and rituals, trouble with addictions, a death, a marriage, family issues. Or it could be more perplexing - a vague feeling something is wrong.

I can provide an empathic, experienced perspective to help you more fully understand your current issues, and to see if there are patterns outside of your awareness that are contributing to your difficulties. I address deeper causes of anxiety and depression, that are usually related to personal history.

I see the aim of treatment as increased self-understanding and positive change. I work with individuals in therapy, intensive psychotherapy, and psychoanalysis. I offer low fee sessions. I am senior NYU faculty and have been teaching psychology, developmental psychology, human development, and critical analysis for the NYU Opportunity Programs.
