I am a psychotherapist in private practice in Tampa and an adjunct professor of psychiatry and social work at several institutions. I practice a form of intensive psychoanalytic therapy which seeks to resolve underlying issues rather than mere symptom reduction with medication or superficial therapy. I have experience working with a range of conditions, including depression, stress, anxiety, and emotional trauma. I have particular interest in the psychotherapy of schizophrenia and working with individuals who have not previously, or only partially, responded to treatment.

I received my academic and clinical training at the University of Pittsburgh and its affiliated psychiatric hospital, where I have also worked on staff. I completed additional postgraduate training at the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis. I am actively involved in the teaching and supervision of psychiatry and social work trainees.

I maintain a small part-time private practice and typically see patients during the week in the daytime and evening hours. I offer free telephone consultations and respond to all phone calls and emails personally. Please visit my website at tampapsychoanalyst.com for more information or to schedule an appointment.
