Thank you for your interest in my services. Choosing an appropriate therapist is often experienced as a daunting task. I appreciate how difficult initiating the psychotherapy process can be. I am committed to establishing an open and collaborative therapeutic relationship with you, and offer a safe, nonjudgmental, supportive environment for growth and change. I work with individuals and couples to find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and to change the pattern that no longer works. As a psychotherapist, I recognize that each course of treatment is subjective and unique.

I have been providing psychotherapy services for almost three decades to diverse client populations. I am a graduate of Hunter College of The City University of New York and The Institute for Human Identity, the first LGBT treatment facility in the U.S. , where I provided clinical supervision to staff and functioned as the Director of Student Training.

Trained in a wide variety of therapeutic techniques, I take an individualized, specific approach based upon the needs of his clients. I have been conducting group psychotherapy specifically focusing on men’s issues since the 1980s. I have extensive experience assisting individuals confronting their own or a loved one’s alcohol abuse.
