You're single, and haven't found your soulmate, or you're in a committed relationship that's impossible. You're depressed, anxious, and have low self-esteem. You or your family has suffered through a historical trauma and you still feel like a victim. You've been trying to conceive, and nature or your partner is uncooperative. You've lost your sense of how to cope and move forward. If any of these concerns are holding you back from realizing your potential or expressing your creative talents, then perhaps it's time to receive some insight, support and hope from a psychoanalytic psychotherapist with 35 years of experience.

I have a solid foundation in the various psychoanalytic depth psychologies and psycho-neuro-biological perspectives.
One way I've been able to help people is to assist them in preventing things in their life from getting worse and at the same time, helping them to overcome the obstacles in order to make things better.

So I come to clinical practice with a rigorous and critical understanding of the theory and technique of psychoanalytic psychotherapy past and present, but I consider it my work to learn the language of each patient's experience, and to speak it with them.
Most mental suffering we endure (if not due to present grief and loss) arises either from our fervent attempts to resolve or answer uncomprehended emotional needs, or because we never learned to endure and adapt our unruly interior lives to the world around us. I help individuals to feel better by attending to all that they are in the moment, as a way of understanding how they have come to be themselves -- and how who they are is at odds with what they want to be and feel. I am trained both in "classical" and contemporary psychoanalysis (IPA member) and in Columbia's pioneering Program in Narrative Medicine, where I now teach.

As a psychoanalytic therapist with specialized training in personality disorders and both group and individual work, I will be a warm, active, and human partner to you in our work.
For most of us, the struggles and symptoms that bring us to therapy – anxiety, depression, patterns that keep us unfulfilled in our relationships, at work, and at home – are there for good reason. As painful as these symptoms can be, they’re often protecting us, in their overzealous and maddening way, from quieter questions or conflicts that are tucked just behind them. At its best, therapy heals not by targeting the symptom but listening to it. The result is often not only recovery from symptoms, but a deeper sense of freedom and sturdiness in oneself, and a greater capacity to connect with others.

I am a psychoanalytic psychologist working remotely with folks across NYS and in person in Hudson, NY. I think of therapy as a way to help people get more used to what living feels like. For some who come in for therapy, living has felt relatively smooth, and they’re drawn to session to get help with specific struggles that have come up suddenly. For others, living has felt too hard for quite some time. In our sessions, we learn how to sense our way through these experiences together. We’ll explore how it feels to invite a witness in to your experience and we’ll deepen your ability to care for yourself as you move through life.

I am a warm, supportive and non-judgmental therapist. We will work together to come to new understandings about your feelings, relationships, and behavior patterns. I favor an empathic and supportive approach which integrates psychodynamic and psychoanalytic techniques in order to help clients not only reduce symptoms, but to also explore and understand the underlying issues. I believe in helping clients identify their strengths to enable them to overcome these issues. I collaborate with and provide referrals to nutritionists, psychiatrists, and physicians as needed.

My psychoanalytic training gives me a deep respect for unconscious processes and mindfulness training and practice invites curiosity, compassion and a non-judgmental attitude in our work together.
Psychotherapy is a process of self-discovery that will help you connect with your inner life, unbind from the past, and live fully in the present. As you learn about and acknowledge different aspects of yourself, you will find rough spots, as well as resources. All parts of your experience play important roles and we can understand what has been useful, what parts might be modified, as well as parts that offer strength and support that can be built upon. These discoveries remove potential obstacles to your growth and open avenues for connection and well-being.

I affirm racial, gender, sexual, and religious diversity, and welcome anyone interested in psychoanalytic work.
We are more mysterious to ourselves than we know. Rather than explore this mystery, though, we tend to seek quick fixes -- diagnosis, medication, self-help, worksheets -- in order to meet the grinding demand for maximum productivity. But ignorance of the unconscious not only compromises our creativity and potential, it also results in significant pain. Our relationships suffer, our goals remain unattainable, we develop harmful habits, and we may even experience depression, anger, anxiety, and despair. Quick fixes provide temporary symptom relief, yet our deeper conflicts endure, and sometimes worsen.

I have also trained at the New York Psychoanalytic Society and Institute and the William Alanson White Institute.
I believe that we all engage in repetitive behaviors in our approaches to relationships, our work, and ourselves. These ways of being and coping made sense at earlier points in our lives, but hold us back from feeling authentic in the present. The process of therapy can create long-term shifts through building understanding of ourselves and by allowing for greater freedom in self-expression. I view therapy as transformative because of the safe space it provides for a new relational experience, one in which patients can experiment with new thoughts, feelings, and words in the presence of a receptive professional.

I decided to pursue psychoanalytic training after a fulfilling career in finance.
We create personal narratives to make sense of our subjective experience of life. Embedded in our narrative, are the internalized images of ourselves that we draw on to explain our lives (e.g. unworthy, undesirable, shameful, superior, unappreciated etc.). In therapy we examine the images that so often lead us to make the unconscious choices that return us to the painfully familiar circumstances that have come to define our life. As we become aware of the ways in which our images have unwittingly influenced our choices, we will have the opportunity to make new choices that may better support living the life to which we aspire.

I am a Columbia-trained psychotherapist and candidate in psychoanalysis at the Psychoanalytic Association at NYU School of Medicine.
Everyone who comes to therapy does so for their own unique reasons — perhaps stressors have become overwhelming, relationships difficult to manage, or symptoms too much to ignore. Therapy should be an authentic conversation aimed at understanding whatever it is in your life that you find challenging. I pair a warm and practical approach with psychodynamic technique to address both current issues and their roots.
