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.

Psychodynamic & Relational Treatment

I combine mindfulness and compassion in my practice, along with meditation when beneficial. 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.
