About me

I am licensed in New York State as a Marriage and Family Therapist with fifteen years of professional experience. I received my MA degree from New College of California in 1994 and later graduated from The Ackerman Institute For The Family in New York City in 2007. While
my treatment approach is eclectic, combining schools of thought, I am basically Psychodynamic in style, combining aspects of Self Psychology and Family Therapy in my interventions. I have worked for a long time with individuals and families coping with mental illness and substance abuse
