View Psychology Today Profile

I have been in practice for 25 years.  I have worked with a variety of issues, with emphasis on analytic and insight-oriented work designed to instill better understanding,  an expansive self-belief and effective means of dealing with symptoms, conflicts, work and relationship stress.  Treatment is interactive and highly individualized.  Specialty approaches include psychodynamic psychotherapy, interpersonal and relational therapy, couples therapy, group therapy, trauma treatment, co-occurring disorders, anger management, occupational counseling, and hypnotherapy.

I have also spent 16 years as the Clinical Director for The Saint Mark’s Place Institute for Mental Health.  My tenure here has given me extensive experience in dealing with quality service provision and compliance with regulatory statutes and changes, including preparation for reviews and audits by OMH, DOH, private insurance companies, and federally funded programs.  I have consulted with not-for-profit agencies as well as group practices.

I also employ a network of experienced colleagues in the fields of psychiatry, child and family therapy, psychological testing, substance abuse counselors, wellness and executive coaching as all part of a comprehensive treatment approach when needed.

In addition to my services described above, patients can be linked to other licensed practitioners who can provide medication, child and family therapy, psychological testing and other specific needs
