About Me

Office Paintings
I am a NYC-based psychotherapist in private practice with broad clinical experience. I have worked with adults, couples, children, and families facing myriad obstacles and conflicts, e.g., depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationships, identity, gender, sexuality, trauma, grief, and loss. I currently work with all clients and have expertise with adults experiencing identity, relational, and/or career conflicts, as well as adolescents, couples, and families.

I am also an actor, author, and artist. My creative experience informs my clinical work, allowing me to help my clients discover, accept, and inhabit untapped versions of themselves.

I graduated with honors from Hunter College School of Social Work, and I have  studied in a number of clinical approaches including relational psychoanalytic psychotherapy and family systems, with psychoanalyst Ken Corbett, among others.

I am the author of Modern Brides & Modern Grooms (Skyhorse Publishing, 2014), and I write for Psychology Today and The Huffington Post, among other popular sources, about self-care, gender, sexuality, and the performing art of living.   My clinical writing has been published by Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association, among others, and I present my work across the country.
