I enjoy working with individuals and couples of various ages and backgrounds on the personal issues that concern them, including relationship problems, career and marital difficulties, depression, and anxiety. Talking to a non-judgmental professional who understands your problems can help you gain perspective on issues that may seem overwhelming and hopeless. I encourage each person in therapy with me to explore their current and past ways of experiencing themselves and relating to others. In doing so, they discover new ways of relating to and being in the world, thereby producing profound changes in their lives.
Similarly, couples therapy can help couples deal with the issues that are disturbing their relationship.
I am a good listener and can be insightful and helpful. I am respectful of cultural and lifestyle diversity.
I trained as a psychoanalyst and am board-certified in that specialty. I am active as a teacher and supervisor of fellow professionals and am the Director of the Postgraduate Programs in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy at Adelphi University. I find my participation in training other professionals to be very helpful in working with both individuals and couples in my own practice.
I encourage you as an individual or couple to consider taking this important step in your life.
