About my practice
I am a clinical psychologist. I trained at Columbia University and earned my Ph.D. there.
In my practice, I focus on helping people with anxiety, depression, relationship problems, pandemic stress, or low self-esteem.
I work with clients to help them understand themselves and their current challenges in a new ways. I believe that more constructive options become more possible for people when they develop a better understanding about the experiences, feelings, and beliefs that have limited them in the past.
I am devoted to helping my clients, and view being a psychotherapist as a profound responsibility. In my work, I am supportive, conscientious, honest, and knowledgeable. I aim to conduct my practice in a caring, respectful, and effective manner.
Becoming a skilled therapist takes many years. I have developed my professional skills by working in a diversity of settings, with a broad range of clients.
For the first 28 years of my career, I worked with adults, adolescents, and children, in a variety of outpatient and inpatient settings in New York City.
Since 2008, my focus has been on providing individual psychotherapy for adults in a private practice.
In 1990, I graduated with a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Columbia University. In 2010, I graduated from the program in adult psychoanalytic psychotherapy, at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Education, affiliated with N.Y.U. School of Medicine.
Much of my work is informed by a psychodynamic approach. However, I also use cognitive approaches when needed.
