Introducing Myself

Poet, teacher, and creative consultant, I’ve been privileged to help people for over 35 years in my psychotherapy practice in the East Village of Manhattan, as well as teach and write.

Short-Term Psychodynamic & Relational Treatment

I tend to be active in my approach, wanting to give you something to use in each session—a tool, tip, insight, and sometimes a homework assignment, including journaling or trying something new between sessions. I combine mindfulness and compassion to understand ourselves and others.

WordPaint sm Coaching

Sessions will center around
forming a safe, creative space
from which to explore the self,
through writing and artistic expression.
