"Licensed Clinical Social Worker", "Board Certified Diplomate"

Gender: Male

Languages Spoken:

As an individual or couple's/marital specialist, I help patients learn the ironic concept of "tolerating intimacy" and in so doing, obtain/enjoy the personal relationship you want and... deserve. Did show for CABLEVISION called 'WHY COUPLES FIGHT/TOLERATING INTIMACY".
Also, two articles written: 'Couple Relationship Problems With A Solution' & 'Body-Mind Strategies for Dealing with Anxiety and Depression' (

Couple's facilitator two years in a row for New York Disaster Counseling Coalition "Renewing Relationships" couples weekend communication workshop, with focus on resliency building, communication skills, listening and empathy.

My patients find my caring but direct approach refreshing and come away with new partnership skills that enhances "communicating"/intimacy. In lonely, stuck relationships, people often go outward to affairs or just outward in their minds distancing from the "love object".  The healthier choice is realizing you can go inward, risking to be seen and see each other, perhaps for the first time.

I am both a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst who is conversational and relates in a caring focused manner. I have years of experience working in both inpatient and outpatient hospital clinics and private practice. I look forward to meeting you. Call my cell 914-403-2926 to arrange appointment.
