Before going into private practice, I was a Clinical Manager at Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC. After the September 11th attacks, I was retained by major corporations to provide counseling to employees suffering from trauma. In 1993, I co-founded the NYC Balkan Rape Crisis Task Force and traveled to Croatia to provide assistance to war survivors. In addition to my work experience, I have extensive post-graduate training... I have a Certificate from the Women's Therapy Centre Institute in Eating and Body Image Problems and from the Center for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis of New Jersey in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.

I integrate theory and practice principals from trauma theory, psychoanalytic theory, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy and Internal Family Systems to meet the person in front of me with the approaches and tools that will be most useful.
Clients come to me for relief of symptoms of anxiety and depression, and to learn to process how trauma or complex trauma may be impacting their lives today and how to move forward from it. They also seek to gain insight into why they do what they do, to improve their agency or control over their own lives, to learn how to recognize and deal with feelings, to build their self-esteem and to find more pleasure and serenity in their lives. As we work towards the goals clients become ready and willing to make the real behavioral changes that will make a positive difference in their lives.

Therapy provides an opportunity for us to grow and become our most authentic selves. I aim to promote self–exploration, help clients experience emotions without becoming overwhelmed by them, and foster the ability to relate to others in new ways. I use an eclectic approach grounded in relational, psychoanalytic theory. I offer a personalized approach tailored to each person’s needs, interests, and goals which may include short term, skills -based training and/ or a more depth- oriented treatment that gets to the core of the problem with the aim toward lasting change.

My philosophy has evolved over two decades of hands-on clinical work, extensive psychoanalytic training and analysis. These experiences have taught me that if I listen carefully enough to anyone's story, they and their struggles make sense. I try to help people stop seeing themselves as an extension of their problem and see the problems as an attempt to cope with something unseen and overwhelming that has gone awry. Every person's choices in life, whether in relationships, work, and play make sense, even if they are self-destructive. I work primarily with adults and adolescents, and with couples.

I been trained in psychoanalytic theories (object relations, relational and modern psychoanalysis) and interventions as well as CBT and motivational interviewing (which is different than what it sounds like).
Change is not only scary, it is difficult. The laws of inertia tell us that nothing will change without an external force. I am an empathic, calming and listening external force. Whether it is depression or anxiety from a life transition/event or past/present trauma, reaching out for support is essential. My motto is simple but true- Be heard. Feel better.

I may utilize cognitive behavioral techniques, psychoanalytic ego psychology and systems therapy, but my assessments are psychoanalytically informed.
Over the past 42 years, I have devoted my practice to the treatment of people who want to feel happier with themselves, their relationships with their children, spouses, or family of origin. Many times people suffer from low self esteem, anxiety and depression. Parents come in with issues around their adolescent's behavior. Adults wish to improve how they communicate to their spouses, or would like to deal more effectively with problems at work and with bosses, or other authority figures. Many need help with everyday functioning, and some are struggling with confidence issues and initiative to set positive goals for the future.

Drawing from a range of Relational Psychoanalytic and strengths-based modalities, I most often work with individuals who are experiencing: depression, anxiety, life transitions, past trauma, dating, marriage, mid-life, family, work or career issues.
Effective therapy can help you gain clarity, an increased sense of inner calm and discover and embrace your authentic self. Because each individual is unique, sessions are customized to meet your specific treatment needs. My approach emphasizes attuned listening, reflective feedback, collaborative insight and an exploration of underlying emotions and processes. In addition we may highlight your personal strengths and interests, in order to promote a fulfilling pathway ahead. Sessions take place once or more per week, depending on individual needs.

I specialize in providing creative art therapy services to individuals of all ages and am dedicated to helping my clients discover their own unique path to happiness and wellbeing. Words alone often cannot express the emotions experienced for many people who are struggling to overcome trauma or challenges in life. By combining traditional psychotherapy with the creative process, art therapy can provide opportunities to explore behaviors, emotions, experiences and our relationships with each other. No previous experience in art making is needed to benefit from this therapeutic method.

As you go through the process of finding a therapist who may be a good fit, there are likely three important questions that you hope to be answered: 1) Will I (or my child) be able to feel comfortable talking with this therapist? 2) Will this therapist be able to truly understand the nature of my concerns? 3) Will I be able to start feeling better and make positive changes in therapy? While it may seem difficult to get answers to these questions while scrolling through the snapshot of a therapist’s profile, I am mindful of incorporating these foundational elements into my therapeutic approach with both adults and adolescents.

I provide long-term psychodynamic therapy to adults and couples. I focus on exploring interpersonal and trauma-based patterns, and how they shape personality, emotions, and everyday functioning. I also use mindfulness, problem solving, and other strategies if your needs call for them. Meeting more than once per week can facilitate this work but I am open to your preference. I seek to create an open, engaged, comfortable, and constantly evolving therapeutic relationship that motivates you to work through your struggles. I individualize my approach to your unique needs and continually adapt as therapy proceeds.

Psychoanalytic Therapists
Psychoanalysis is an in-depth form of therapy. The client learns what conscious and unconscious wishes drive their patterns of thinking and behavior on the theory that, by making the unconscious conscious, they will make more educated choices over how they think and act.
