Career Concerns
Practice Description: It is important to me that when my patients leave my office they feel that I have listened to them, understand their problem(s) and that the healing has begun. I am committed to helping them recognize and correct patterns that interfere with the realization of their personal and/or professional goals and living their life more fully.

I specialize in issues such as depression, anxiety, difficulties with grief/loss, life transitions, low self-esteem, career issues, interpersonal relationships and parenting children. I also treat people who feel relatively sturdy and successful but are going through a period of notable stress when stretched beyond their capacity. Whatever the reason for seeking therapy, I will listen to your concerns and help you decide upon the most appropriate course of action. I work mainly with adults (including college students) and couples. I am a licensed psychotherapist and psychoanalyst and have a graduate degree from Columbia University and a four year postgraduate certification in Psychoanalysis and Comprehensive Psychotherapy from the National Institute for the Psychotherapies.

Prior to working in private practice, my public sector experience included working for the Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services, where I provided psychotherapy to adults, children and families. While on the Affect Disorder Team at Payne Whitney Clinic of New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Hospital (in-patient psychiatry), I provided care to patients in the acute stage of their illness as well as psychoeducation to their spouses and families. At The Bridge, I treated people with chronic mental disabilities and substance abuse.

Drawing on my education and experience in both the public and private sector, my treatment approach is comprehensive, extending from contemporary relational psychoanalytic psychotherapy to cognitive-behavioral and brief psychodynamic therapies depending on the person's needs. I act as a source of support and encouragement while providing the necessary insight to facilitate a process that results ultimately in positive change. My patients find my treatment style warm, nonjudgmental, empathic and always respectful.

There are not many professions which allow someone to make a positive impact on the lives of others everyday. I believe mine is one of them and I feel privileged and honored to be a part of this discipline. Please feel free to visit me at my website:
