About

I have 42 years of experience providing psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families for a wide range of problems including depression, anxiety, relationship, job and school difficulties, loss, trauma and lifestyle changes. I have extensive psychodynamic training and my therapeutic orientation is a synthesis of this background with cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal and relational approaches. My work emphasizes the uniqueness of each individual and the belief that therapy is a collaborative process. With empathy, compassion, yet objectivity, I strive to help people gain/regain a positive sense of self and lead more productive, gratifying lives in their relationships and in their work.
In addition to my clinical practice, I have supervised at the graduate and post-graduate level in mental health clinics, in analytic training institutes and privately for the last 29 years.
I am committed to helping people gain greater understanding of and control over self defeating patterns of behavior and have considerable experience working with individuals struggling with psychological problems combined with substance abuse-related difficulties. My work also includes many years of experience with those suffering from more severe mental illness.
