from the New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute.
With 40 years of clinical practice experience, I can help you gain insight into yourself, your feelings, your symptoms and behaviors. I have expertise in helping people who suffer from panic attacks, anxiety, depression, loneliness, fear, trauma, grief, relationship problems, and work issues. I can help you to change that which you choose to change. I am warm, empathic, and understanding. Although it is difficult to take that first step, it is eventually rewarding to have the freedom that comes from understanding yourself better and making choices that benefit your life. I mainly use an insight oriented psychodynamic approach.

My approach is warm, interactive, and informed by my psychoanalytic background.
Without our realizing it we repeat behavior that can make our lives such a puzzle to us and those around us. It hurts, and we feel stuck. Underlying issues really do influence what we do and how we feel. And these days reality can be overwhelming.

I work mostly from a contemporary psychoanalytic perspective, focusing on what issues in your current life are being influenced by the past, and of course, what you can do about them.

I work particularly well with relationship issues, family issues, divorce, grief and loss. I am a former adjunct instructor at Fordham Graduate School of Social Work and have spent over 30 years years working directly with patients as well as supervising other therapists.

I have over 20 years of psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic experience in helping individuals and couples improve self-esteem, relationship, and work-related issues that lead to personal change. If you are battling anxiety, depression, or simply overwhelmed, helping you spell out what you feel can make a huge difference. Sometimes the words to describe your feelings are not there. Just finding a way to express what you feel and want can be restorative. I can help you find the words to articulate your needs, clarify your dilemmas, and, in so doing, clear the roadblocks that get in the way of reaching your full potential.

I use a developmental approach, tailoring my therapy to particular age groups - job situations, relationships, mid-life crises or physical limitations and retirement in older adults. I also specialize in working with couples with a certificate in EFCT.

I am an NYC-based psychotherapist and psychoanalyst with over 20 years of clinical experience. I trained at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research (IPTAR) and am still involved with the organization today. In my opinion, psychodynamic therapy is an essential part of psychological work and can be beneficial for people from all walks of life. I have found that psychodynamic psychotherapy is an effective treatment option for those struggling with overwhelming emotions. One of the benefits of this approach is that it helps to create a safe and trusting relationship, which is important when learning new coping skills.

I work with adults, children and adolescents. I use a psycho-dynamic, psychoanalytically informed approach that seeks to understand how primary early experience and relationships have impacted and influenced current self experience. The goal of treatment is to deconstruct problematic relational patterns and self experience and to achieve strengthened connection to one's unique, authentic self. I currently train at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research.

I am a Training and Supervising Analyst and Faculty Member at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research.
Depression, anxiety, rage,envy, jealousy may be blocking your ability to go forward in life, to fully realize your potential. These uncomfortable feelings are usually connected to something you are trying not to face.They are signals you might benefit from a therapist's help. In my work over the past 35 years I have helped many clients acknowledge what they really want in their lives when they feel stuck: finding a new relationship, learning how to fix problems in an existing relationship, getting over a breakup, overcoming a body image concern or out of control eating and/or exercise.

I tailor my practice to your needs using methods which draw on psychodynamic, psychoanalytic and behavioral therapies.
We are all collectively facing a stressful period in our lives. Covid 19 has changed almost everything that we once knew. Especially now we need to feel connected and have a safe place to discuss your feelings. Starting therapy can often be difficult and intimidating. My supportive approach helps to establish a connection in which you can feel heard and understood. We will work together to uncover issues and behaviors that have stopped you from being able to reach your goals and experience a sense of well being, In the process, you will acquire greater awareness and discover coping methods that will help manage your feelings.

I am a graduate psychoanalyst of the New York Psychoanalytic Institute, the first established in the United States.
I've been in private practice for 24 years as a psychodynamic psychotherapist and a psychoanalyst. My method aims at deep changes in the personality so that your troubling symptoms are relieved in a more permanent way. Often, you don't know why your life feels so unsatisfying,why relationships feel troubled or why you cannot seem to choose what will make you happy.Or there may be just a particular area of difficulty in a life that seems to be going rather well.

I work therapeutically with anyone who believes that they are struggling with either or both their personal relationships and career fulfillment. I also have long experience with those who feel depressed or despairing and as well, those who suffer from inhibiting anxiety. I try to use my 40 years of accumulated experience with a wide range of men and women to be optimally useful to each new client I meet and to help them as quickly as possible. Although a trained psychoanalyst, I am an active participant in sharing my observations, impressions and insights.

I am a clinical psychologist with twenty-five years of experience in the practice, supervision and teaching of psychotherapy in New York. I would say my approach is warm, supportive and flexible--responsive to the challenge a client faces. I have served on the medical faculty of two universities, including seventeen years at Columbia, and try to balance the benefits of evidenced-based treatment with the sensitivity of psychoanalytic and family approaches; I am certified in these last two areas. My goal is to help clients overcome obstacles to working and loving with greater pleasure and clarity.

Respectfulness, clarity and directness, tempered by humor characterize my exploratory work. In a flexible and pragmatic manner, I aim to alleviate symptoms and problems in living in the briefest possible time. Although not a sufficient reason to remain in therapy, a regular benefit is the pleasure and pride in an examined life.

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.
