I was awarded my M.A. at Columbia University in 1993 and my Ph.D. at the New School for Social Research in 2002, where I received the Alfred J. Marrow award for excellence in my research and graduate work. I also completed a Post-doctoral Fellowship at North Central Bronx Hospital, which included advanced training in diagnosis, supervision and individual psychotherapy.
Before opening my practice I worked in psychiatric hospitals for a number of years, and was a Team Leader on a psychiatric inpatient unit, Director of Psychological Assessment, and a Senior Supervisor for interns and other psychologists. I was a Consulting Psychologist in skilled nursing facilities, where I trained staff and created systems for the delivery psychological services. In the last few years I worked with executives in Fortune 500 companies, assessing their business acumen and leadership skills.
In my current practice, I specialize in individual psychotherapy, where my breadth of experience allows me to tailor my approach to each person’s unique struggles. I also have considerable expertise in Psychological Testing, which can provide special insight into emotional and psychological functioning and is often a powerful complement to therapy. Finally, I continue to supervise graduate students and other psychologists, and am currently a Clinical Associate at the New School for Social Research. I’m a member of the American Psychological Association, the New York State Psychological Association, the Society for Personality Assessment and the National Register of Psychologists.
I specialize in anxiety, depression, work and relationship issues. I also have considerable expertise with men’s issues, anger management, and working with gay and lesbian clients. With every client—even those who are unsure about the particular issues underlying their troubles—I’ll work with you to develop a deeper and more accurate understanding of the specific problems, which ultimately opens the door to new solutions.
