Therapy offers the opportunity to create long-lasting change by focusing on not only symptoms, but the deep-seated patterns and experiences that have helped you survive, but now keep you feeling stuck. I am committed to working with adults and couples across the mental health spectrum with a relational psychoanalytic approach. This means that I both listen very carefully and engage with you to discover your conscious and unconscious patterns of relating with others and with yourself. My approach shifts with each person or couple, and incorporates elements of mindfulness and attention to the body.
I taught literature and contemporary poetry at the college level for many years before changing career and completing my studies in advanced psychoanalytic training at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy in New York City. I am licensed as a psychoanalyst in New York state and work in private practice, both in-person and remotely.
