Clinical Psychologist, Private Practice; New York, NY, 2001-Present

I treat adults individually by integrating a range of psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral approaches for anxiety disorders (including panic, social anxiety, generalized anxiety, PTSD, claustrophobia and other phobias), depression, difficulties in career and improving romantic, familial and other significant relationships.

I practice couples therapy using a range of psychotherapeutic and practical approaches including the Developmental Model for relationship difficulties.

I optimize sexual well being in adults individually and in couples using psychosexual therapy for problems including out of control sexual behaviors, pain, lack of desire, erectile dysfunctions and other concerns.


I was and continue to be mentored by Phil Stutz in using The Tools® created by him and Barry Michels.

I am a Certified RIE® Mentor providing private in-home consultations for parents and babies aged from birth to three years old, facilitating babies' sleep, feeding, diapering, discipline, play, socialization and attachment.

I am a Certified Discernment Counselor
