I am a licensed clinical psychologist and psychotherapist in NYC, located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan near Columbia University. My view of psychotherapy tends to be nonconventional. I’m more interested in people’s experience and the meaning they make of their lives than thinking in terms of diagnosis. Growth happens when we change the way we see the world and ourselves — a focus on thoughts is not enough. If we could think our way out of problems, change would be easy. To better understand the way I work and to read more about my thoughts on therapy click here to see my blog.

I do counseling and therapy with adults from college age and up who want help addressing problems ranging from depression, anxiety, and relationship issues to addiction, codependency, and the effects of early trauma. I also have experience working with 12-Step and recovery issues. I have been in private practice for 30 years and was affiliated with The Hazelden Foundation in Manhattan for 14 years. I also train and supervise new therapists and psychologists.
