Introducing Myself

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. I am now happy to introduce also to my services writing consultation and workshops, as well as creativity consulting.

Psychodynamic Relational Treatment

While it is important to listen and understand what is being said, I also want to give you something to use in each session—a tool, tip, insight, and sometimes a homework assignment, including journaling or trying something new. I also now offer meditation when beneficial to our work.

Creativity Coaching

I am excited to now offer creativity coaching to help writers, artists, and other creators reach their desired goals and dreams.

Sessions will center around
forming a safe and productive space from which to grow and launch your work.
