I have been working for many years as a drama therapist and psychoanalyst and have helped people live more fulfilling lives. I work with individuals and couples in Greenwich Village. I am an expert on adoption issues but also work in all areas. I work well with couples and find all of my work interesting and exciting. Sometimes I use the drama therapy in combination with psychoanalysis and at other times, I just use the techniques of psychoanalysis. It will all depend on the patient.

Additional areas of specialty include infertility, adoption , and helping women navigate the complicated feelings they may be grappling with during and after their pregnancies.
At different times in our lives we can feel stuck and struggle with finding our way. Oftentimes, our usual ways of dealing with these struggles aren't helping or may even be preventing us from feeling better. I work with individuals who are dealing with loss and trauma, sadness and anxiety or having difficulties in relationships, work, school, parenting, and varying life-stage transitions. In this safe, supportive and warm environment we will work together to help you feel better while also understanding what is causing your distress.

Areas of special interest include relationship issues; coping with anxiety & depression, adoption , aging, caregiving, trauma, grief & loss & the creative process.
As a therapist for over 20 years I have worked with an array of young people, older adults and creative people including artists, musicians, photographers, and writers. In my work with individuals, I believe in a collaborative approach and try to provide a non-judgmental and safe setting for exploring feelings and concerns in depth. I try through this process of identifying and understanding areas of difficulty to help individuals become more self-reflective and better able to affect change in their everyday lives.

I often work with folks around the following topics: trauma, 

LGBTQIA+ identity, race, gender, emerging identities, life transitions, neurodiversity, and 
transracial/transnational adoption .
I’m passionate about supporting people along their healing journeys and paths of self-discovery. I don’t believe we seek out therapy because we are “flawed” or because we need to be “fixed.” Instead, I view therapy as a powerful act of self-care when navigating challenging systems, -isms, circumstances and relationships. My own lived experience as a neurodivergent Korean adoptee drives my commitment to practicing from a place that holds space for - and celebrates- each person’s multiple and intersecting identities.

I have experience with addictions, including eating disorders, as well as helping couples cope with infertility, adoption and changing careers.
Are you silently suffering by not using your voice? My therapeutic approach is to focus on helping you find the strength to use this voice and understand how anxiety might be getting in the way from you having the life that you want. Honoring your truth is the path to healing and creating healthy relationships. I will work with you to help reduce negative "self-talk" and better understand how anger, shame and guilt can actually help guide you to your authentic, more fulfilled self. Additionally, I have many years of experience in working with clients around the US and the globe via Tele-therapy.

In addition, I have a background in issues related to race, gender, adoption and other areas of difference.
Inevitably, we all encounter periods in our lives in which what we've learned to that point isn't sufficient for the challenges we now face. I believe therapy can be a rich environment in which to better understand ourselves and the world and to revisit what we want in life and how to get there. Whether you are dealing with significant anxiety or depression, or simply need a new environment to learn your way through new challenges with a helping eye and ear, I bring a creative, curious and open-minded approach to helping you progress through life's challenges.

Psychoanalytic therapy is often maligned in popular media but it remains for me one of the few treatments that seeks to address the innermost, often hidden, parts of ourselves. Psychological symptoms are not only a source of suffering, they are also a message that speaks to desires, conflicts, and pain, wrought by a personal history that can sometimes only come alive when spoken to a professional listening other. The flip-side of anxiety is always a passionate dream that has not been encountered as such. I see my work as bringing my clients closer to that possibility. The intimacy of speaking and listening is rare and a gift.

I use a contemporary psychoanalytic approach to address a variety of issues by engaging with and honoring each person's unique history, internal experience, and personal and cultural circumstances. I work with people from many different backgrounds who find themselves struggling in their lives: those who feel stuck or stalled in approaching a crossroads, those who can't get past what has happened or are going through something too big to bear alone, those who know where they want to be but can't seem to get there, and those too anxious or depressed even to look ahead.

Finding a therapist can be a daunting process. I believe it is important to feel at ease in order to do the work therapy entails. I provide a comfortable, down-to-earth environment that will allow you to develop insight, find more choices in your life, and to build self confidence. I have advanced training in psychoanalysis and psychodynamic psychotherapy, however unlike classical analysis I do not act as a blank screen and have a contemporary approach. I provide feedback and believe in mutual collaboration between patient and therapist.

I strongly believe that all people are capable to bring about positive change in their lives. I take an action-oriented approach using Rogerian therapy and CBT interventions to enhance self-awareness, expression, and acceptance. The aim of my practice is to establish a foundation based on trust and understanding so we can collaboratively build a suitable space to face challenges while maintaining a sharp distinction between feelings, thoughts, actions, and the roles that they may fill.

My background and training as an Art Therapist was a major determinant in my decision to become a Psychologist and Psychoanalyst. I was enthralled by the power, curative possibilities and revealing nature in the creative process. As a result, my area of particular interest is in working with artists, writers, photographers and individuals in the theater and music industry. I am an interactive therapist with extensive postgraduate training. When possible, I use humor in our sessions, pretty well I am told, a bit of sarcasm now and then as well!

We can work quickly in a crisis or explore deeper issues. I love complex issues: the tensions within couples that stunt their intimacy. The challenges of parenting. The lingering sense that you cannot reach some vital aspects of yourself.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
