Bio

Formally trained as a Modern Analyst at the Hyman Spotniz/Phyllis Meadow Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies in Manhattan as well as The New York Graduate School of Psychoanalysis, I completed my field-placement/ externship at New York's Bellevue Hospital. I also have a working relationship at The Metropolitan Center for Mental Health Clinic. I received further life coach training under the direction of noted professional guidance coach and mentor Joseph L. Russo.

The Modern Analytic approach employs a variety of modalities as “needed”, in other words “we do what ever is necessary, what ever works”, such as CBT, DBT, EFT, Classical Freudian, Modern Analysis, Life Coaching etc... The point is, we “meet” the individual where they are psychically. Each relationship is individual and tailored to that person’s needs.

 I am a therapist/life coach specializing in individual, couples, group and family therapy. I maintain a private practice and would welcome the opportunity to work with you.

With over fifteen years of experience as a therapist and life coach, and as a graduate of BGSP-NY and The Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies, I have enjoyed a private practice working with a broad spectrum of clients and patients. Among my areas of expertise are personal relations, couple and family relations, food and addiction issues, depression and anxiety and sexuality. 

In addition to being a prominent relationship therapist, I have also presented at National conferences and to general audiences speaking on the topics of psychosomatic causes, reactions and possible cures.

My approach tends to be that of an interactive, solution-focused therapist and life coach. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I will integrate several modalities, methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized and modern approach tailored to each client or patient. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
