    My Mission

    For over 25 years in private practice treating individuals, couples, and families, I have provided a calm, caring and supportive environment where patients can develop strengths and skills for managing life’s challenges.

    My clinical perspective focuses on developing an understanding of our current behavior, along with our underlying thoughts, feelings, and beliefs in the context of our past experience. This, I believe, offers a robust framework for understanding and coping effectively with life’s complexities.

    My Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology is from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York and I earned a postdoctoral Certificate in Psychoanalysis and Comprehensive Psychotherapy at the National Institute for the Psychotherapies.

    I am a member of the American Psychological Association and the Connecticut Psychological Association.

    Listed in the National Register of Healthcare Providers in Psychology since 1985, I am licensed to practice in Connecticut (no. 001533), New York (no. 007754), Michigan (no. 6301016979), and Texas (no. 36862) as well as being registered to provide telehealth services to Florida residents [(no. 156), for more information: http://www.flhealthsource.gov/telehealth/)].

    My Values

    Empathy

    Working with emotions is fundamental to how I conduct the process of psychotherapy. In the course of treatment, you are likely to experience my resonance with your emotional states.

    Acceptance

    I embody a non-judgmental approach in all aspects of my role as your therapist. You will be accepted for who you are without having to prove yourself.

    Respect

    I will take you seriously and show you attentiveness, thoughtfulness, and courtesy – each a manifestation of the respect that is the basis of our therapeutic relationship.

    Confidentiality

    Privacy and confidentiality are at the core of our relationship. I don’t disclose even the fact that you are my patient without your written authorization and certainly never if we encounter one another publicly.
