Experienced & Well-Educated Psychologist

Raised and Trained in New York City, Now practicing in Toronto and NYC

Psychotherapy Training and Skills

I was born and raised in New York City.  I now practice in Toronto and New York City.  I treat adults and adolescents for individual therapy, and also do quite a bit of couples therapy as well as family therapy. 

My commitment to my work motivated me to seek out many years of education in the field of psychology.

After earning my Bachelor of Science degree at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Fordham University in New York City, then worked as a psychologist at various hospitals and clinics.

I later completed a four-year training program in Psychoanalysis at the William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis, and Psychology.


Mentoring Psychologists & Psychotherapists 

 I teach and supervise other psychotherapists because I want to contribute to my discipline and its continued development. I have supervised psychotherapists at both the William Alanson White Institute and at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy.  Additionally, I taught students seeking advanced training in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy.

 The Bottom Line

Throughout my career, I have cultivated skills which not only enable me to understand how a person developed their difficulties, but also to explore both your past and your present in order to help you make the necessary changes that can lead to a happier and more well-adjusted life.
