I’m a psychoanalyst and clinical psychologist in private practice since 2009. I specialize in offering quality psychoanalytic treatment remotely and online for people with active lifestyles that are constantly on the go – entrepreneurs, creatives, and business people. For those who travel and may not be able to visit a psychoanalyst’s office in New York City multiple times per week, the ability to see a high quality clinician remotely and maintain continuity of care in this way can make all the difference in the world. My areas of expertise are psychoanalysis and psychological testing, as well as exploration of gender and sexuality, identity and body. I am fortunate to have a wide range of experience working in a variety of treatment modalities and clinical settings – including private practice, hospital settings, mental health clinics, and universities – with persons suffering from depression and anxiety, eating disorders, sexual abuse, self-harm; university students, transitioning into new careers, procuring long-term relationships; chronic medical conditions, including HIV and chronic pain, traumatic brain injury; issues concerning older adults and the elderly, dementia; grief and loss. In my experience, a combination of psychoanalytic psychotherapy (talk therapy, usually 1-2-3 times per week), psychoeducation, and coping skills has proven to be the best treatment for attaining the long lasting results and consistent life changes that one desires – encouraging exploration of the self, uncovering the roots of relationship patterns, fostering creativity, and decreasing inhibitions, symptoms and anxiety – all while putting concrete stress management skills in place to help manage symptoms while doing the work of talk therapy.
Psychological symptoms are not simply external problems to be overcome but rather messages speaking to unconscious wishes and conflicts. The best way to approach them is with a non-judgemental stance; be conscientious and not over pathologize the human experience; pay attention to your dreams. Understanding the root of the symptom unlocks passion, drive, and creativity. Gaining insight into relationship patterns fosters the ability to create healthier ways of interacting with others interpersonally in both love and work.
I offer psychotherapy and psychoanalysis for adolescents and adults, as well as psychological and neuropsychological testing services. Based in NYC, I specialise in online treatment for entrepreneurs, creative and businesspeople who travel, offering continuity of care for people on the go. This service also provides quality treatment to people who live in more rural or remote areas and may not otherwise have access to a city or high quality mental health care.
I am currently accepting new patients, so please feel free to contact me. I also provide consultation services for mental health practitioners and psychoanalysts in formation, who are interested in deepening their understanding of psychoanalytic theory and practice.
