About

I have been practicing individual, couple, and group psychotherapy with children, adolescents, and adults for the past 37 years. After receiving my doctorate (Ph.D.) from Columbia University, I studied for many years at the Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies, Adelphi University where I received my Postdoctoral Diploma in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy. I am a licensed clinical social worker in New Jersey and New York. While I am skilled in treating the general clinical population, I also specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of patients struggling with more difficult issues, such as substance abuse, eating disorders, and severe personality disorders. Patients frequently describe me as warm, caring, and responsive.
Nationally recognized for my clinical expertise, I have led workshops and spoken at professional conferences, have had my work published in scholarly journals, and have taught and supervised students and experienced professionals, who have consulted with me privately, seeking assistance with their more difficult cases.
My many professional publications include articles on intimacy, the therapeutic relationship, and dreams. I am listed in WHO's WHO in the World, WHO's WHO in Medicine and Healthcare, and was elected into the National Academies of Practice (honorary interdisciplinary healthcare organization) as a "Distinguished Practitioner."
