Earning graduate degrees from Columbia and Yale Universities, I am a clinical psychologist, licensed in both the states of New York and Massachusetts, who is trained in psychoanalytic, cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, and humanistic/spiritual treatment modalities.
With offices in the West Village of Manhattan in New York City and on Martha’s Vineyard in Edgartown, Massachusetts, I work with adults, children and adolescents with a variety of difficulties, including: problems related to anxiety; mood, such as depression and poor self-esteem; interpersonal conflicts; career transitions; issues of professional and personal identity; feelings of ineffectiveness and failures of performance in work and school; marital conflicts; difficulties with intimacy in romantic relationships; and, coping to reduce and eliminate self-harming tendencies. I have specialized training and particular clinical expertise in difficulties in romantic relationships; issues central to the creative process of working artists; issues affecting those who have experienced trauma; issues particular to LGBTQ individuals (including gay and lesbian parents); the discernment and development of the integration of spirituality and psychology; the treatment of eating and personality disorder; and, the administration of psychological and psycho-educational assessments for children and adolescents. Having worked at NYU/Bellevue Hospital, St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital and Columbia University Medical Center, I am particularly adept at helping those struggling with even the most intense of life difficulties to find a measure of meaning, satisfaction, and success.
Please feel free to familiarize yourself with my background. If you believe my education and experience matches your need, I sincerely look forward to bringing this same level commitment to my collaborative work with you.
