My Approach to Helping

I strongly believe in a collaborative approach. It is indeed true that I have much education, training, and experience, but in the end you are the expert on you. I enjoy my work enormously and derive intense satisfaction from helping others. I begin with a casual, friendly approach, but make no mistake--when it comes down to serious issues I am right en pointe and rarely miss a beat. I cultivate trust and openness in the therapeutic relationship. I am hoping you will feel comfortable approaching me and beginning to talk about some of the issues that are affecting you.

More Info About My Practice

I have numerous publications in prestigious journals (articles and book chapters) and have presented at numerous national and international conferences, including the 1st International Conference on AIDS in Ethiopia and the 4th International Conference on Home and Community Care for Persons with HIVAIDS in Paris, France. My article (including original photographs) about my work as a mental health first responder after 911 was both published in Psychoanalytic Social Work and given as a keynote address to the XXVI Convenings of Crisis Intervention Personnel in Chicago, IL in April 2002. My work is now archived at the National September 11 Memorial Museum. I incorporate aspects of art, music, drama, and other creative pursuits in my practice and also integrate yoga, shiatsu, meditation, near-linguistic programming, hypnosis, and other alternative healing methods. You can read reviews of my work at the following websites: healthgrades, google, yelp, ratemds, and all therapist.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

There is such a thing as a wounded healer, and I can say that I fit the mold, although I have done a significant amount of work to overcome my struggles so that my problems do not interfere with my work as a therapist. I have experienced significant hardships in the past, and going through these has helped mr relate much better to my curre clientele, whether the problems be similar or different. In fact, I am not sure who I would be had I not endured such adversity. For example, when I was 25 my mother passed away unexpectedly from metastasized breast cancer. At the time the loss was very bitter, but with time ( and my own therapy) I came to understand certain truths about the human experience and I became better able to relate to others going through their own losses. I believe that humans are the sum of their experiences, good and bad, and my difficulties have not deepened and enriched me. Because I have experienced much turmoil in my life, I have a high tolerance for hearing charged and challenging material, as well as a highly developed sense of empathy and compassion.
