Practice Description: I am a dedicated, perceptive and highly competent clinician with 31 years postgraduate experience. Certified in Psychoanalysis and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, I also hold state, national and international certifications in addictions treatment and have taught as well as supervised in the areas of addiction/recovery, HIV/AIDS and personality disorders. I have worked intensively and extensively with those struggling with (and/or recovering from) all forms of addictive disorders: alcohol/other drugs, sexual compulsivity, eating disorders, gambling. In addition, I am strongly experienced in -- and sensitive to -- issues of loss, trauma, identity, illness as well as relational/attachment and sexual concerns.

I treat an adult clientele of diverse racial/ethnic backgrounds and all sexual and gender identifications. I believe that each person's therapeutic journey is unique; my commitment is to fostering a safe and supportive connection between us where all thoughts, feelings, issues and dysfunctional patterns may be honestly, creatively and compassionately explored.

I work empathically and interactively with you to provide a Relational analytic experience which will effect profound growth and change in your relationships with yourself and with others. I respect the courage it takes to reveal and reflect on oneself in therapy and offer compassion, structure, humor and balance.

Please feel free to call me at (718) 748 7484 with any questions or to arrange an initial consultation. My office is centrally located in midtown Manhattan, directly accessible to all transportation.
