How do we become more fully ourselves, more fully present and alive to one’s thoughts and feelings, and better aware of our own unique creative potentials? The path to this can lead to myriad emotional dysregulation, anxiety, depression, confusion, indecision about career, substance misuse, and other slings and arrows from life. I offer psychoanalytic psychotherapy that explores ways to make positive change in your life. We can work on behavioral changes but also a deeper exploration of the origins of what makes you do the things you do.

I integrate a relational psychoanalytic approach with other modalities, including cognitive behavioral, object relations, family systems and emotionally focused therapy.
Whether your problems are specific - a relationship, work, troubling thoughts or experiences, or more abstract - feeling stuck, empty, lonely or misunderstood, quality therapy can offer invaluable support. I work collaboratively, compassionately and interactively with individuals and couples to improve their lives. Following your lead and pace, we explore your past and present, patterns in your life, your perceptions, behaviors and choices, and consider how our relationship may mirror your dynamics in the outside world. Though it can seem impossible initially, gradually you gain the insight and emotional capacity necessary for invaluable lasting change that feels authentic and comes from within.

I am available for psychoanalytic psychotherapy to address life struggles, manage anxiety, depression, dissatisfaction and indecision. It is a brave and optimistic step to begin therapy which has the power to heal old wounds, renew self confidence, and expand emotional experience. I have a special interest in helping individuals and families improve communication regarding adoption and donor assisted reproduction. It is never too late to talk with children. Adult resistance to these conversations can reflect difficult life experiences, especially regarding infertility, including experiences of shame and embarrasment.

My postdoctoral training in child and adult psychoanalysis at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute (NYPSI) has enriched my understanding of the complexity of the mind.
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.

I work within several psychotherapeutic modalities that I adapt depending on my client’s needs and character, including psychoanalytic therapy, interpersonal and relational psychotherapy and cognitive/behavioral therapy.
I believe that people are shaped by their relationships and life experiences. I work to create a trusting relationship where we can explore your difficulties and improve your life. Many of the people I work with are quite thoughtful and accomplished but they are not happy. They feel that they could benefit from personal inquiry into the problems of living that they are experiencing. Having complex emotions and struggles is normal. It is an aspect of life. But it’s best not to live with it all alone. We need to express our grief, confusion and fear, and we need someone to listen, to respond and to empathize.

Waitlist for new clients
Psychoanalytic psychotherapy helps people to draw connections between past and present, understand repeating patterns and relationship dynamics, and better know and define themselves.
There are many ways that we as human beings suffer and try to cope. Layers of personal, familial, and historical trauma contribute to problematic relationship patterns, bodily pain and illness, over- or under-working, and obsessions. But these symptoms that are a source of suffering are often also expressing things that can't be expressed otherwise or pointing to aspects of living that need more care. I help my clients use words to explore these parts of self, and to have new experiences, in order to make room for a life of more fullness, love, meaning, creativity, and ease.

I offer a psychoanalytic environment for people who are in pain and who are asking for help. A psychoanalytic environment is a place where your life really matters. Specifically, I offer help for people who have exhausted common sense and reassurance as ways of surviving life. Psychoanalysis is an environment in which you are invited to speak freely in a way that you cannot speak anywhere else. A place where your life really matters is a place that facilitates your freedom of thought, speech and feeling, a place where the unknown in you can appear.

Modern psychoanalytic therapy represents an opportunity to talk without fear of judgment; to put words to feelings without reprisal; to work through difficult conversations with someone who is trained to both listen carefully and provide support and guidance.
I work with individuals, couples, and families who are trying to cope with their own or a loved one's chemical or behavioral addiction, relationship challenges, work issues, or life decisions. I also see people who aren’t enduring any of those concerns, but who want to speak on a regular basis to address small issues before they become big ones. My style is conversational, direct, and investigative. I listen carefully both to what is said and for what is omitted, ask questions until we agree that I understand your perspective, and help guide you to long-term solutions. For therapists: I am available for supervision.

My training is in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis which means that I view the therapeutic relationship as central to the change process and that I help patients to understand that their conflicts from the past affect the way they feel and act in the present.
I have been treating patients in psychotherapy for over 35 years. Therapy offers people help towards change, change towards the life they want. Yet,for various reasons, this life has not been attainable. My approach is to offer patients a safe, supportive, understanding environment in which they can explore their hopes and fears and the obstacles that get in their way of having a fuller, richer life.

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.

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.

After receiving psychoanalytic training in South America and Europe, I became certified as a psychotherapist by NAAP (National Association for Advancement of Psychoanalysis) in NYC.
I am a certified psychotherapist and treat individuals with symptoms such as anxiety or depression, reflecting deeper unresolved emotional conflicts that need processing and working-through. These conflicts cause mental pain and can negatively affect all areas of the individual's life: personal and professional relationships, intimate relationships, career development, general physical health and well-being. My orientation is psychodynamic. I am an out-of-network provider and can give receipts for reimbursement.
