Since my training at Columbia University I have enjoyed a long and fulfilling career as a psychotherapist. I specialize in helping couples, adults, and adolescents identify and change destructive behaviors, build better relationships and achieve their potential. I work with a diverse clientele regardless of cultural background or sexual orientation. I do both short and long term therapy in a nurturing, nonjudgmental environment adapting my treatment to the client’s needs. I am certified in EMDR, a time efficient method for treating post traumatic stress disorder and other issues. In general my approach is psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral. I am particularly adept in dealing with relationship problems, depression, grief, anxiety and trauma related issues.

In addition to my private practice I am a clinical supervisor and have supervised experienced therapists in family service, eating disorders, addictions, DUI and probation programs. I also have extensive experience in parent training.

I empower people to make changes when they feel stuck and dissatisfied with their life. I believe every human being can confront and overcome emotional blocks to achieve their goals and live a meaningful life.
