As a licensed clinical social worker and certified psychoanalyst practicing in New York City, I work with a diverse clientele of adult individuals and couples; I also provide supervision to new clinicians. I bring to my work not only substantive training and many years of practice but also patience, empathy, curiosity, humor and reliability. My areas of interest and expertise are wide ranging and include identity crisis, creative blocks, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, self-esteem problems, LGBTQ issues, sexual difficulties, eating/body image struggles, procrastination, and relationship conflicts. Regardless of the specifics of their difficulties, my primary concern is to help my patients more successfully navigate challenges, come to better understand themselves, and learn to derive more satisfaction from their lives. My office is located in the Union Square/NYU area of Greenwich Village.
