About me

I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist with offices in Manhattan and on Long Island (currently working remotely).

Education/training: I hold degrees from NYU (MSW) and Yale (BA, cum laude) as well as certification in Psychoanalysis and Comprehensive Psychotherapy from National Institute for the Psychotherapies, a 4-year postgraduate training program in contemporary psychodynamic and psychoanalytic treatment modalities.

Teaching: I'm on faculty at NIP, where I teach clinical practice and lead group supervision. 

In addition, I lead workshops, present theoretical and clinical papers, and moderate panels at conferences, colloquia, and webinars at a number of psychoanalytic associations, including: International Association of Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (IARPP), American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA), National Institute for the Psychotherapies Professional Association (NIP), and Suffolk Institute for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis (SIPP). I‘ve moderated international webinars as well.

Publications: I am Submissions Editor of Psychoanalytic Perspectives, a peer-reviewed journal, and Editor of The IARPP Bulletin, the International Association of Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (IARPP) newsletter which reaches over 2000 therapists worldwide. My clinical writing is published in the journals Psychoanalytic Perspectives, Attachment, and Psychoanalytic Psychology. My papers include “Being Railroaded” (Gradiva Award nomination, NAAP; Educators Award, NIP) and “The Personal is Political is Psychoanalytic,” both of which are frequently cited in the analytic literature and are read in analytic training and in professional study groups.

Mainstream press: I have been interviewed by journalists from The Washington PostNew York MagazineTimeOut NY, Agence France-Presse, The Guardian (UK), and Gold (a comedians’ website).

Leadership: I serve on an international advisory panel as a member of  IARPP's Colloquium Committee. I also chair NIP's Recruitment Committee and serve as organizer and moderator of NIP’s annual Open House events for prospective applicants. During a 5-year term as NIP’s Associate Director of Continuing Education, I organized and moderated 25 workshops with many of the country’s most influential psychologists and psychoanalysts. 

Plus: I continue reading, writing, and studying to deepen my skills and understanding of the change process. 

Earlier: Prior to establishing my private practice, my work experience included providing assessments and psychotherapy at NIP’s outpatient clinic, individual and group therapy at a community mental health center run  by Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx; and working with students and the guidance department at a Central Harlem elementary school. 

I work equally well with adults, children, and teens. I also provide couples counseling and clinical supervision.
