Practice Description: In a sense, all therapy -- even individual therapy -- is family therapy. We carry the voices, the gazes, the expectations, the approvals and disapprovals, the deep connections to those we first knew within us throughout our lives. Therapy can help to uncover and clarify these links and engender a better understanding of our own motivations, leaving us freer to make effective decisions in our daily lives.

As a licensed clinical psychologist, I have directed a pediatric HIV mental health clinic in the Bronx, worked with people with HIV/AIDS in Brooklyn, developed and managed the mental health program for a syringe exchange in midtown Manhattan, and continue to teach psychological assessment at John Jay College for Criminal Justice and supervise doctoral students at Long Island University. Additionally, I have worked extensively with individuals and couples in the LGBT community. While my approach is basically psychodynamic – that is, helping to identify and work with the conflicting emotions and thoughts that can lead to problems in living – I bring a great deal of flexibility to my work. In addressing problems with alcohol and substance use, for example, I utilize a harm-reduction approach that helps the individual to comprehend the unique meanings and purposes of drinking or using drugs, as well as its costs and benefits, so that patterns of use can be explored and changed. In any kind of therapy, one size does not fit all. I view therapy as a collaborative process between therapist and patient, and I believe much of the work is accomplished through that relationship itself.
