Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW-R, MS
I am a licensed clinical social worker and certified psychoanalyst who has been working with individuals and couples on a range of issues for over 20 years. My specialty is grief and trauma and I run bereavement groups in cycles throughout the year. I have offices in both SOHO and Prospect Heights, Brooklyn.
Finding a therapist can be a daunting process. I believe it is important to feel at ease in order to do the work therapy entails. I provide a comfortable, down-to-earth environment that will allow you to develop insight, find more choices in your life, and to build self confidence. I have advanced training in psychoanalysis and psychodynamic psychotherapy, however unlike classical analysis I do not act as a blank screen and have a contemporary approach. I provide feedback and believe in mutual collaboration between patient and therapist.
In addition to my private practice, I have worked in a variety of agency settings and have experience with a range of issues (depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, identity, relationships, life transition, chronic illness, stress, divorce/separation, retirement, addiction and anger). I also hold a Masters in Non-Profit Management.
