    About Me

    I have spent a good part of my life helping people make the challenges in their lives a bit more navigable. As a clinically trained psychotherapist, I have worked with my clients privately, in residential treatment centers and school settings in New York City and Westchester.

    Beyond my clinical work, I’ve supported the communities in which I have lived as a Big Brother, a mentor, a youth baseball coach, and an elected member of my local board of education.

    I have been fortunate to co-author a number of articles that have been published in peer-reviewed publications on topics as varied as sexual grooming in schools to the rights of foreign countries to intervene during times of humanitarian crisis.

     

    My Approach

    My therapeutic approaches span psychodynamic, psycho-educational, and cognitive modalities and include Person-centered Therapy, CBT, and TF-CBT. However, I strongly believe that the alliance between client and therapist is the greatest predictor of a successful outcome.

    I believe that you are never too young or too old to gain the insights necessary to heal. My role is to help you illuminate them.

    My Specialties

    I work with teens, adults, and families on any number of issues including anxiety, depression, and emotional regulation. I am also clinically trained in short-term family stabilization interventions. I have seen the power of second-order change and how reworking the communication paradigm in the home can ultimately lead to a change in behavior. I also subscribe to the healing power of groups and have a particular interest in forming them around 21st-century issues impacting teens, adults, and parents.

    Self-Care

    My interests include reading, exercise, and travel. I also find nothing concentrates the mind and refreshes the spirit quite like 3 hours in the sun watching a well-pitched baseball game.
