As a clinical psychologist and interpersonal psychoanalyst, I am interested in the ways in which our present difficulties are influenced by expectations or assumptions that are outside of our awareness. Becoming more aware of the underlying themes that contribute to dissatisfaction helps us to make informed, lasting changes in relationships, family, work, and ourselves.
I work with adolescents and adults who are experiencing difficulties in adjustment, anxiety, depression, or other issues that interfere with life satisfaction. My practices includes a diversity of people as individuals or in couples, with a focus on women's issues, LGBTQ+ populations, and health and reproductive psychology. I work collaboratively with patients, with a focus on the present that acknowledges the contributions of the past.
I received a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University and completed psychoanalytic training at the William Alanson White Institute, where I am the Past President of the William Alanson White Society. I am also an Associate Adjunct Professor at Teachers College, Columbia University.
