I  am an experienced, trained clinical social work psychotherapist with many years of experience in private practice as well as in organizations;  as a young therapist, I worked in different settings - family court, training schools for juveniles, psychiatric clinics and day care centers, and NYC elementaary schools in various capacities.  At  that time, I was given extensive training and supervision for work with children and adolescents, in both talking and play therapy.I always worked with adults, expecially young adults and young parents, and continue to do so. I have also trained in ACT, Harville Hendrix  Treatment for Couples, mindfulness, relaxation techniques, etc.

As a Group Psychotherapist and teacher, I enjoy the positive interactions of the patients with whom I work;  group psychotherapy is a unique means of reaching different aspects of people.
