As a licensed psychoanalyst I have the training to get to the root of your problems.  I was required to undergo my own psychotherapy before I could be licensed.  I have helped all kinds of clients who come with a variety of problems involving depression, anxiety, addictions, and the like.  I have also done my homework, researching and authoring 15 books on psychology and psychotherapy.  With over 47 years of experience, I know how to zero in on a person's core issues, especially when they are stuck and don't know quite how to best help themselves.  You can read more about me and see a video on my website:
Over the years I have dealt with numerous issues.  I help creative people get unblocked; depressed and anxious people relax and open up; people with self-esteem issues learn to respect themselves; and people who are lost to find and know themselves in the Socratic sense.
I received a Ph.D. from the Union Institute in Cincinnati and graduated from three psychotherapy institutes,  receiving a Certificate in Psychoanalysis from the Washington Square Institute in New York in 1981. I was an Adjunct Assistant Professor of psychology at the Borough of Manhattan Community College for 17 years. My books include 76 Typical Therapy Mistakes: A Workbook for Psychotherapists, The Dictionary of Dream Interpretation, The Art of Hating, Psychotherapy With People in the Arts, Jennifer and Her SelvesTurning Points in Analytic Therapy and The Way to Be.  They are available at
I am a member of the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis and the Association for Psychological Science.  I am in the health insurance networks of Aetna, Cigna, Empire Blue Cross, Humana, Paradigm and Healthfirst.
