I have done over ten years of psychoanalytic institute training, which means that after obtaining my master’s in social work, I went on to study further, to have a deep theoretical base and years of practical experience as a clinician, in order to best assist clients.
The people I work with are often experiencing some type of psychic pain and want to alleviate that. They may come in because of difficulties with partners, family, friends, issues with their job, body image, disordered eating, or self esteem concerns. Possibly, they are having intra-psychic conflicts like anxiety and depression. I help people relieve these symptoms while using therapy to bring joy and satisfaction in client’s relationships, work, and self-regard-- simultaneously helping them grow to their most fully realized selves.

I am a certified Jungian Analyst in mid-town Manhattan doing psychodynamic psychotherapy and Jungian analysis. I work at a deep level with individuals who want to break out of unhealthy and unhelpful patterns affecting their lives, relationships, and work in order to awaken unrealized vitality, potential, and creativity. What distinguishes Jungian Analysis from other psychoanalytic approaches to therapy is the attention given to the unconscious as a source of wisdom, vitality and creativity, which can awaken a deeper and more powerful sense of self.

from The New School, completed DBT training with Behavioral Tech, finished fellowships at Mt Sinai and Columbia, and received my psychoanalytic certificate from WAWI.
Welcome. I would like to help you take the next step to improve the quality of your life. This might be the next step from a position where you feel locked in self-defeating patterns, the next step in facing something from your past, or the next step in addressing feelings and moods that diminish your engagement with life. The process of taking the next step itself can be concerning -- each part, from contemplation to action, deserves care and attention. I hope you will allow me to help you take this courageous next step.

Psychoanalytic therapy is a mode of intensive listening that provides you with a protected space to say anything that comes to mind; it is a chance to explore thoughts and feelings that you previously have not been able to articulate to yourself and to others. Psychoanalysis is a unique, extraordinary relationship that facilitates the emergence of novel and surprising ways of seeing and thinking. Inhibitions and destructive conflicts in areas of creative pursuit, career, relationships, and sex dissipate, leading to new possibilities and experiences, and the alleviation of anxiety and suffering.

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 treat a variety of issues from a psychoanalytic perspective.
Maybe you're reading this because you're depressed, anxious or struggling with relationships. Maybe you can't explain your pain? You may be experiencing common problems that lead people towards therapy. Many people feel skeptical when it comes to seeking therapy and wonder if it can help. Therapy, at its best, is tailored to your specific needs so you can find a path to a more content and fulfilled life. Whether you know exactly what you would like to work on or you just have a vague feeling that things are not ok, therapy can help.
