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.
Informed by contemporary psychoanalytic values of truth, curiosity and respect for life, I am versed, as well, in cognitive behavioral modalities (CBT, DBT, SFT). My years of experience have deepened my conviction that my role is to help you find your own way of living, one that is true to your values and respectful of the life experiences you have had.
Attachment theory underpins my professional values, and I believe strongly in the transformative potential of human relationships
