People come to therapy for a variety of reasons, whether for support or symptom relief, a life transition or a relationship problem, poor self-esteem, grief, feeling stuck, or perhaps simply a desire to know oneself better.

Whatever your reason, I believe in creating a safe and non-judgmental environment where thoughts, feelings, and actions can be explored in a therapeutic relationship built on trust and collaboration.

Most people benefit from one to two weekly 45 minute psychotherapy sessions. There is no one-size-fits-all. I draw upon years of experience in many modalities including psychodynamic, cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapy, problem-solving and crisis intervention, and can tailor a treatment that meets your needs.

For those seeking a more intensive approach, I offer psychoanalytic treatment. Despite its reputation, psychoanalysis is alive and well, and is still considered the gold-standard for long-lasting change and a comprehensive understanding of the self, taking into account factors outside of our awareness that may be interfering with our life.

After a brief phone consultation, we will meet and discuss what is right for you.


Couples often seek treatment when they need help with communication, when there has been a breach of trust, when partners are unsure if they are compatible, or even when looking to break up amicably. I take a similar approach to couples as I do with individuals–that is, looking for conscious and unconscious patterns that may be getting in the way of one’s relationship. I take a more active approach when working with couples, while being careful to remain neutral. Depending on the goals of the couple, we can meet for a short-term, goal-oriented treatment, or for a longer, more open-ended therapy. Couples sessions are 60 minutes long.


I am on the faculty at three psychoanalytic institutes, the Manhattan Institute for Psychoanalysis (MIP), the National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP), and the Institute for Expressive Analysis (IEA). At both MIP and NIP, I teach a course on dream analysis from a relational perspective, including a historical overview of dreams from Freud to the present day. At IEA, I teach a basic clinical concepts course for new psychoanalysts.


I currently provide individual supervision to clinicians and analytic candidates, and run a group for early-career psychotherapists. I have supervised MSW interns, and offer supervision to social workers seeking licensure. In addition to supervising, I participate in several peer-led supervision and reading groups.
