During the 30 years that I have been in practice I have worked with individuals with a wide variety of difficulties. The issues have ranged from depression and anxiety to difficulties in relationships with spouses, friends, and children/parents. I have worked with suicidal individuals and with those facing crises in their home or work situations. I work with children and adolescents with a wide variety of difficulties from ADD/ADHD to oppositional behavior, depression and drug problems. As well I have specialized in treating individuals who suffer from PTSD, and histories of sexual and/or physical abuse. In other words, I work with the variety of problems that people develop as they live, work, grow and develop in our society I have a Masters in Clinical Social Work from the University of Michigan. Subsequently to this I studied for 8 years at the British Psychoanalytic Society/Institute of Psychoanalysis in London to become an Adult Psychoanalyst. I also spent 4 years studying at The Anna Freud Centre In London in their Training program in Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis. I am Board Certified and a Fellow of the International Psychoanalytic Association. I provide Individual Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis with children, adolescents and adults. I also treat couples in Marital Therapy and work with families in Family Therapy.

Depressed, anxious, problems in a relationship. These are some of the issues that people bring into therapy. As I see it, therapy needs to provide a non-judgmental, accepting and supportive space to work on the problems one faces. I strive to treat each person as a unique individual, helping them to direct the treatment that will move them beyond the problems that they are now facing to a life that is hopefully more fulfilling and less painful. It is my aim to help each individual to deal with the issues that are affecting them and causing them the emotional pain that has lead them to seek psychotherapy. I seek to truly listen to each person, to deal with them with respect and work with them as the unique individual that they are. No two people are the same and I do not provide a cookie cutter approach to the work that I do. Each person has his or her own needs, pains, strengths and issues that need addressing. Patients have described me as ‘caring, nurturing, gentle, and direct’ as a therapist. Through psychotherapy, we can help make sense of what is feeling wrong, relieve your anxiety and depression, heal wounds, sadness and anger from relationships, grieve losses, and help you improve your self-esteem and regain your ability for closeness and intimacy.
