I have been a psychotherapist for over fifteen years, counseling individuals and couples with a variety of psychiatric conditions and life transitions. I see the therapeutic relationship as a collaborative process and create an environment where you can begin to critically think about your life choices while exploring relationship patterns. I will help you achieve both clarity and resolution with respect to life transitions and relationships by asking precise questions. Together we will focus on issues regarding empowerment, liberation and healing. You will reflect, act, and reflect again on your emotional and social life.
My approach combines traditional psychoanalysis with critical pedagogy and liberation psychology, into what I call "critical therapy". I have trained at the New York Freudian Society and the New York Psychoanalytic Society. More recently have given numerous presentations on critical therapy throughout the country. My specialty is trauma and PTSD.
I have a Masters in Psychology in addition to my Masters in Social Work. I have lectured at New York University and Fordham University and I am the founder and President of the Critical Therapy Center.

My Therapy Focus
My current focus is on critical therapy. Critical Therapy combines modern psychoanalytic techniques with the theory and practice of liberation psychology and critical pedagogy to pursue empowerment, liberation and healing.
