I’m a psychotherapist with more than 30 years’ experience working with individuals, couples, families and groups to improve self-esteem and interpersonal relationships, manage life transitions, and develop skills to cope with stress, anxiety, and depression.
My clinical approach is rooted in a psychodynamic orientation, meaning I help patients understand – and uncover the connections between – their past experiences and present realities. I combine this orientation with influences from dance/movement therapy, which recognizes the link between our mental and physical well-being, and from family systems theory, which acknowledges the importance of family dynamics in shaping identity.
Above all, my approach is centered on you, the patient. I view therapy as a collaboration in which we work together to find solutions that improve your life. If words are not enough, I offer you the choice to explore non-verbal communication and movement expression, which some patients find liberating.
In addition to my private practice, I teach graduate-level therapy students and supervise other mental health professionals. For many years, I was a Senior Supervising Clinician at Jacobi Medical Center and regularly consulted mental health organizations worldwide. Please feel free to call or schedule a consultation to explore whether I am the right person for you.
