I have many years experience and intensive postgraduate training in the practice of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
There are many reasons for seeking professional help. A person may feel that he or she has trouble in personal or professional relationships. Sometimes it is possible to identify a troubling pattern, such as easily getting angry or repeatedly finding oneself with a partner who doesn't commit. A person may also seek help because of feeling anxious, depressed, or lonely. Feeling anxious all the time, too alone, or without motivation is uncomfortable. Some individuals use substances, sex or other behaviors to manage these internal states.

Emotional suffering and pain originate from the early childhood experiences which shape our minds. The haunted ghost from our past takes residence in our minds so that we repeat unhealthy patterns and continue suffering and pain. How can we free ourselves from the ghost spell? By providing a holding environment and sharing my genuine curiosity and psychoanalytic understanding, I help my patients sever the tie to the ghost from the past and break the spell. Insights into the root of their symptoms and difficulties and a new experience in a therapeutic relationship lead to psychological change, greater freedom, and enriched lives.

My treatment approach draws from psychoanalytic, interpersonal, and somatic philosophies.
Therapy offers the opportunity to speak about that which may feel unspeakable, shameful, or muddled. The dual process of speaking and observing what emerges is useful for confronting a range of challenges and symptoms. Through careful listening and interpretation, I aim to foster insight and curiosity about your inner world. Over time, patterns emerge that invite exploration and open up the possibility for changes to be made.

I have received advanced training in psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
Life can be challenging and at times painful. We often need help to sort through difficult issues, clarify needs and desires, and work towards goals that are important to us. Therapy is an opportunity to explore your inner self and become aware of hidden patterns that are holding you back. Talking to a therapist is a way to heal, grow, and come to an understanding of your unique history and present situation.

In my practice, I utilize psychoanalytic and somatic (body-mind) therapy.
The most important aspect of therapy is a trusting relationship in which one feels valued, understood, recognized and seen. I work with people who want to understand the connections between past experiences and patterns in their current lives to have more satisfying relationships. The people I work with want to feel connected to others, repair past relationships, participate in corrective and reparatory experiences, understand their feelings, actions and thoughts, and be at peace with themselves. Many suffer from depression, anxiety, trauma, body image or eating, and find themselves in challenging periods of transitions.

I work with adolescents and adults from diverse backgrounds, addressing concerns like anxiety, depression, and addiction. I also help with issues around careers, desire, and creative work. Many experience feelings of shame, guilt, and a lack of direction, which often affect their relationships with others and their work, family, and romantic lives. My sessions involve focused talk. By unpacking personal narratives—including day-to-day feelings—we aim to understand the underlying forces in these stories, some of which may not be immediately apparent. I use a psychoanalytic approach, focusing on how the unconscious shapes behavior.

My expertise lies in counseling my patients to master their anxieties, depression, relationship, and vocational struggles. In addition to being a licensed social worker, and psychotherapist on staff at my post-graduate institute for psychoanalytic psychotherapy, I have extensive experience in both the business and fashion worlds and can readily appreciate the difficulties engendered by high-pressure careers. Having worked in competitive environments, I am exquisitely attuned to the many self-esteem vulnerabilities that can inhibit people from achieving their goals.

My decision to become a therapist evolved as my values, my own understanding of the world & my place in it, broadened. It is this evolution that I work to facilitate for my patients as they seek to find their unique places in the world. I believe in relationship therapy, with both a psychodynamic & open systems theory base. I try to account for both environmental & hereditary variables in the treatment paradigm using direct intervention & a mix of traditional psychodynamic & psychoanalytic techniques, including CBT & DBT elements.

In addition to doing therapy I teach and supervise at the Manhattan Institute and the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Study Center.
There is no simple formula for helping people but there are necessary elements: an atmosphere of safety and respect, and openess to and curiosity about the uniqueness of each person. Therapy is essentially a series of conversations in which you and I create meaningful solutions to problems and difficulties in living. The opportunity provided by therapy for greater self awareness allows people to stop self defeating behavior and destructive patterns of living and to get on with making the best use of their time and talents.

I have worked for over 15 years with children, adolescents, and adults on issues ranging from anxiety, depression, eating disorders, body image issues, trauma, relationship, identity, and work difficulties. Additional experience in community mental health clinics, hospitals, group homes, and the Washington, D.C. Superior Courts have prepared me to help a diverse multiethnic and international population.

With more than 10 years experience, I offer an integrated approach of contemplative psychotherapy and psychoanalytic thought.
Psychotherapy is a practice of deep listening and understanding. I help people develop insight into their troubles and look into habitual patterns that may create obstacles to their life goals. Together, we identify these patterns, explore feelings, and put effective coping skills into practice. When working with children, my approach invites the family in. Parent coaching, which involves a neurobiological understanding, and psychodynamic insight are integral. Through play therapy I help children discover ways to communicate their experience. The purpose is to establish a connection that encourages growth and the sense that children have a positive impact in their world.
