Treatment Modalities
- Individual psychotherapy

- EMDR
 
In psychotherapy and couples counseling, I use a flexible and interactive approach to help you to develop new coping strategies. I do this by helping you to understand how your moods are influenced by the interplay between biological factors and your past and present experiences. I also emphasize the role of the brain in shaping how you feel.

In treatment, I can help you to develop insight into what triggers unhealthy, self-critical thoughts and self-defeating patterns of behavior so you feel stronger and more content. Contact me to help you to explore ways to reach your goals and live a healthier life.
 
In Sessions:

I am  interactive and compassionate. My purpose is to create a safe environment where you can access and express painful and angry feelings -- to address the issues you believe are interfering with your finding a reliable path towards personal growth and  success.

We focus on your developing insight into self-defeating patterns of behavior that are often the sources of debilitating depression and anxiety, personal dissatisfaction, and feelings of despair.

I will explain to you about biological factors that contribute to these feelings and teach you the practice of Mindfulness: a meditation practice proven to alleviate stress.

  Qualifications
For over thirty years, I have been providing psychotherapy and counseling to individuals, couples, and groups.
Before starting my private practice in 1987, I worked at Bellevue Psychiatric Hospital in variety of settings: the in-patient Resident Training Ward; the out-patient Psychiatric and Alcoholism Clinic; and, the out-patient Geriatric center.  I also worked at Greenwich House, a treatment program for substance abusers.

As an author, I have written on the process of psychotherapy. And  as an educator, I taught advanced clinical courses in individual, couples, and group psychotherapy at Adelphi University’s School of Social Work (at the New York City  and Poughkeepsie New York branches).

As a clinical supervisor, I have worked with psychotherapists and analysts in training at the Institute for Human Identity, the Psychotherapy Center for Gender and Sexuality at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, and the National Institute for Psychotherapies. Currently, I supervise psychotherapists in private practice.
