I am a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst with offices in New York City and Northport, on the North Shore of Long Island’s Suffolk County.

Education/training: I hold degrees from NYU (MSW) and Yale (BA, cum laude, with honors) as well as certification in Psychoanalysis and Comprehensive Psychotherapy from National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP), a renown 4-year postgraduate training program in contemporary psychodynamic and psychoanalytic treatment modalities (Educators Award recipient for outstanding scholarly contribution).

Teaching: I am a faculty member at NIP, where I teach clinical practice and lead group supervision.

In addition, I lead workshops, present theoretical and clinical papers, and moderate panels at conferences, colloquia, and webinars at a number of psychoanalytic associations, including: International Association of Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (IARPP), American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA), National Institute for the Psychotherapies Professional Association (NIP), and Suffolk Institute for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis (SIPP). I‘ve moderated international webinars as well.

Publications: I serve as Submissions Editor of Psychoanalytic Perspectives, a peer-reviewed journal, and Editor of The IARPP Bulletin, the International Association of Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (IARPP) newsletter which reaches nearly 2000 therapists worldwide. My clinical and theoretical writing is published in the journals Psychoanalytic Perspectives and Psychoanalytic Psychology. My papers include “Being Railroaded” (Gradiva Award nomination, NAAP) and “The Personal is Political is Psychoanalytic,” both of which are frequently cited in the analytic literature and read in analytic training and professional study groups.

Mainstream press: I have been interviewed by journalists from The Washington Post, New York Magazine, TimeOut NY, Agence France-Presse, The Guardian (UK), and Gold (a comedians’ website).

Leadership: I serve as organizer and moderator of NIP’s annual Open House events for prospective applicants and chair NIP’s Recruitment Committee. During a 5-year term as NIP’s Associate Director of Continuing Education, I organized and moderated 25 workshops with many of the country’s most influential psychologists and psychoanalysts. I also currently serve on IARPP’s international Colloquium Committee.

Plus: I continue reading, writing, and studying to deepen my skills and understanding of the change process.

Prior to establishing my private practice, my work experience included providing therapy at NIP’s outpatient clinic, an Albert Einstein College of Medicine community mental health clinic in the Bronx, and a Harlem elementary school.

I work equally well with adults, children, and teens, and I also provide couples counseling and clinical supervision.
