My approach would best be described as exploratory and relational, which means I tend to help my clients explore and examine the relationship between their past and their present, and to identify the patterns that play out in their lives and their relationships. My view is that a considerable amount of psychological distress and suffering develops as a consequence of problems in relationships. To me, psychotherapy is an interactive process that focuses on identifying maladaptive patterns, understanding how they play out, and replacing them with more adaptive ways of relating. One's confidence, sense of competency, and even one's view of oneself is greatly influenced by the ways in which one relates to others throughout life, and strengthening those things begins with an examination of one's relationships.

In my practice I strive to create a collaborative, supportive, and warm environment where my clients feel comfortable exploring the patterns that recur in their lives. Identifying and understanding these patterns can help to understand how they contribute to distress and dissatisfaction, and can point the way toward lasting and meaningful change.

More Info About My Practice

I'm a Columbia University educated clinical psychologist with postdoctoral clinical and research training. For over 15 years I have been actively engaged in helping others increase their satisfaction in life. I maintain a general adult psychotherapy practice, with extensive experience treating anxiety disorders, mood disorders, relationship issues, and life adjustment issues. In addition, I specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of personality disorders, trauma-related disorders, and identity disorders, and have advanced training in Transference Focused Psychotherapy, a research supported treatment developed for use with people with Borderline Personality Disorder.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

A good way to think about psychotherapy is as an intervention that is specifically focused on helping you develop more constructive ways to deal with issues in your life. It is recommended whenever a person is grappling with a life problem or specific mental health concern that is causing them pain or distress. It calls for an active effort on your part to reflect carefully on the problems you are experiencing, to be mindful of your efforts at solutions and why they do or do not work, and to be ready to attempt some changes in your life that may or may not be easy. While psychotherapy can sometimes be difficult, a considerable amount of research has demonstrated that it can be one of the most effective ways to create real and lasting change.
