Languages Spoken:

I am a doctoral-level clinical social work psychotherapist.  In addition to my Manhattan psychotherapy practice, I also have an office in the Riverdale section of the Bronx.  Besides my psychotherapy practice, I am an Adjunct Associate Professor in the MSW program at the NYU Silver School of Social Work.  I have taught at the school since 1986.  The effort I make in my work is to provide a safe, comfortable environment in which we can work together to explore, understand, and deal with your concerns, struggles, and worries.  Psychotherapy offers us an opportunity to figure out what has been painful, difficult, and confusing in our lives.  By working together, we hopefully will clarify the concerns and issues that you are dealing with, as well as approach what you want or need to change about yourself and your life.
