As a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst, I am interested in how relationships heal and transform individuals. I work closely with my patients to illuminate areas in which they feel disconnected from others, and then together, we come up with ways to bridge those gaps. I have specialties in work with survivors of incest and sexual abuse, couples counseling and parenting issues, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer adolescents and adults, as well as experience working with dissociation due to trauma.

At QuIPP, we are queer, non-binary, depth-oriented, feminist, and trauma-informed. Our therapeutic approaches include CBT, DBT, and psychodynamic and we seek to explore the deep impacts of others (familial, peer, and social) on the minds and spirits of our clients. Our clinical areas of expertise include: gender & sexuality, trauma, transition related support, and poly/kinky & sex positivity. Given that trauma and emotional pain often originate within relationships, we take a relational (and deeply compassionate) approach to therapy.

Psychotherapy can be challenging, but it is a rewarding process. Most people come in to discuss the problems in their lives. They often forget about what is going well, and what are their natural talents and abilities. Psychotherapy helps you reclaim yourself. We will augment your natural coping skills to help you develop a new freedom and a new happiness at work and in your relationships...in approaching your life.

I believe life has charged us with one task: be you, as wholly as you can possibly be. There is a seed of infinite potential within each of us. I help you water it, and give you some tools to continue nurturing it. I meet you where you’re at. We discuss your goals and why you want to work with me, and take it from there. By training I’m a therapist, but our work does not need to remain in an office with two chairs - though it certainly can. I consider myself a psycho-somatic neuro-physiological therapist because I interact with you on every level of your being, drawing from wisdom both ancient and modern.

I believe psychotherapy is a tool, whereby clients can recognize both the conscious and unconscious factors that contribute to their pain. While people often have similar problems, there is no one size fits all solution. I work with clients to not only identify their problems, but to effect a solution, whereby the client can understand the behavioral patterns that contribute to their pain. Together, we can formulate a plan to achieve the change needed to have the peaceful, fulfilled life you see for yourself. Whether we need to discover more about the past or focus on the present, I will develop a proper treatment plan .

Stress, confusion and fear prevent us from accessing the motivation and energy needed to create a more fulfilling and successful life. And getting to a place of peace and emotional well-being requires not only your attention and great care but also a guide, someone to facilitate your effort. I'm in ongoing advanced training in psychoanalytic and psychodynamic psychotherapy but unlike typical therapists I don't act like a blank screen. I have a modern approach to therapy and provide feedback and collaborate with my clients.

Often when clients begin the process of looking for a therapist, they find themselves in a place where something is no longer working for them. This place can be overwhelming, and they may feel stuck or hopeless but can’t always pinpoint the reason. As their therapist, I provide a safe space to listen to their story and explore what brought them in. Through the work of therapy, clients begin to discover the roots of their patterns and behaviors and how they can be reworked over time. I work with individuals going through life transitions whose struggles include relationship issues, anxiety, depression and trauma.

No one seeks therapy because they feel their life is going well. However, seeking therapy is a sign that things are actually going right! Deeply, intimately, and passionately knowing yourself is the key to happiness and I want to help you achieve that. Knowledge is power and with that power you can make decisions to change. You can achieve acess to parts of yourself that can make you feel alive and in love with life. I am excited to help you do that.

Many of my clients describe losing a loved one was like being hit by a Mac truck. There is something unbelievable about how a loved one is no longer with us ;it is akin to a sudden shock. The need to tell one's story and organize the narrative is essential to the process of healing. Repeating the story in front of witnesses either in a group setting or individually helps integrate this new reality into one's frame of reference. The purpose of the sessions individual or group in to help to make you feel less alone in your personal tragedy. Repeatedly group members report a sense of healing being connected to others.

I work with individual adults and couples; I am happy to offer in person sessions in Park Slope as well as virtual sessions in New York State. I specialize in treating people-pleasing and codependent patterns in relationships. You may have needed people-pleasing at a time in your life, but find it is no longer working now. People struggling with codependency typically have a history of trauma, abuse, neglect or other painful experiences. Even if no longer in those situations, you may experience deep loneliness from hiding yourself, resentment, physical aches and pains, substance use or perfectionism.

I provide a safe, welcoming place to bring your thoughts and feelings, inner conflicts and concerns and your hopes for change. We will work together to understand patterns that no longer serve you and may be contributing to emotional pain. Whether you have issues around intimacy, relationships, parenting, work dissatisfaction, overcoming creative blocks or overwhelming feelings that keep you from creating a richer, more purposeful life, therapy can be life changing. For children, play therapy in addition to talk can help get to the root of difficult behavior in conflicts with peers, at school and with family.

Dissociative Disorders (DID) Therapists

How does therapy for dissociative disorders work?

Dissociation may be triggered by stress or other upsetting circumstances, and therapy can address the traumatic events at the core of an individual’s dissociation. Understanding why a person may dissociate can help the therapist and the individual come up with alternative methods of coping. A person with a dissociative disorder may get stuck on negative thinking, for example, and treatment like cognitive behavioral therapy is a gold standard for breaking such thinking. And dialectical behavior therapy, for example, can help a person manage their anguish through better emotion regulation.

Which therapies are best for dissociative disorders?

Specific approaches used by professionals include cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavior, psychodynamic, schema therapies, among others. Cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavior therapies are two widely used therapies that can help individuals with painful memories and past traumas. These therapies work to integrate an individual's different identities into one person.

Are there specific medications for dissociation?

There are no specific medications prescribed for dissociative disorders. However, psychosis, depression, anxiety, and/or panic often co-occur in dissociative disorders. A psychiatrist may prescribe medications for any accompanying symptom—which may include antipsychotics like aripiprazole, antidepressants like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or anti-anxiety drugs like benzodiazepines.

How often and how long are therapy sessions?

Like any type of therapy, sessions depend on the individual. Patients may see improvement within 15 to 20 sessions, at an average of 50 minutes per session, others may opt for 20 to 30 sessions over, perhaps, a six-month period. There are still other patients, especially those who have co-occurring conditions like depression and anxiety, who may need to continue sessions for up to 12 to 18 months.
