Description of Practice/Services Offered
I am a clinical psychologist practicing psychodynamic and supportive psychotherapy with adults and older adolescents, as well as psychoanalysis with adults. Thanks to my time as a post-doctoral fellow and staff psychologist at Columbia University’s Department of Counseling and Psychological Services, I have expertise and a strong interest in working with the challenges faced by college and graduate students. In addition, the repercussions of early loss and persistent grief have been a focus of my research and clinical practice. Other areas of specialization include problems with intimacy, parenting concerns, and creative and work-related inhibitions.
