My beliefs about what is useful in therapy have been shaped by both my professional and human experiences. I have worked in inpatient and outpatient psychiatry, hospice care, family reunification and community mental health, and I provided individual and group therapy on staff at New York University's student counseling center for a number of years, where I enjoyed working with young adults.
I earned my bachelors degree in social and political sciences from the University of California, Berkeley and my masters degree in social work from Washington University in St. Louis.
I have advanced certifications in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis from the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy in NYC, where I am now on faculty.
I am Director of the One Year Training Program in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at Manhattan Institute for Psychoanalysis.
Attachment theory underpins my professional values, and I believe strongly in the transformative potential of human relationships.
