My Approach to Helping

I believe that every person has an inner sense or "knowing" of what the steps are that are needed to carry their life forward. Therapy should provide a relationship and a space in which the client is helped to discover that inner knowing and the steps that flow from it. This relationship is based on trust and acceptance and it fosters the ability of the client to relate to him or herself with empathy and compassion. The outcome of good therapy should be that the client becomes empowered to met their needs effectively, form satisfactory relationships and create a life that is meaningful to them.

More Info About My Practice

I have a PhD in clinical psychology from Teachers College, Columbia University. In my private practice, I do both short-term problem focused work and long-term therapy on long-standing life issues. I have a certificate in psychoanalysis from the William Alanson White Institute, a certificate in Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy and in Dialectic Behavior Therapy. I have extensive training and experience with Nonviolent Communication. I was Director of Psychological Services and Director of the pre-doctoral clinical psychology internship at Gouverneur (a New York City municipal hospital) for most of 18 years. During those years, I supervised many psychologists and interns and assessed and treated a wide variety of patients. I work with children and adolescents as well as adults, work with individuals, couple and families. I am fluent in Spanish.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy provides a relationship in which we can acquire the ability and skills to access our inner resources, overcome blocks, find clarity, and acquire greater competence in managing our emotions, being effective in meeting our needs, develop satisfying relationships, discover our creativity (become freer). It can greatly enhance our ability to enjoy life and create a life that is meaningful to us.
