I’m licensed as a psychologist in New York State and board certified as an expert by the American Board of Professional Psychologists. I’m a fellow of the American Academy of Clinical Psychology and the National Register of Health Service Psychologists. I got my doctorate in clinical psychology from Long Island University after earning a bachelor’s degree at Harvard. After that, I worked for a long time at Montefiore Medical Center and as an assistant professor of clinical psychiatry at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. I’ve also written a little bit about psychotherapy on PsychCentral.com and Psychology Today.
In my private practice, I’ve worked with physicians, nurses, small business owners, managers, and other people under pressure in stressful careers. I specialize in relieving depression, anxiety, and other significant mood problems. People often come to me with difficulties at work, trouble at their intense jobs, problems in their relationships, or unexpected life events. I also often work with people who feel that they just aren’t succeeding as much as they would like, or couples who are having trouble getting along.
As a therapist, I’m different with every patient, but I always listen as closely as I can, and I believe therapy should be a lively, supportive, challenging discourse. I offer psychodynamic treatment, but I also have training in cognitive-behavioral therapy. I work closely with a number of psychiatrists, and when necessary I provide referrals. Currently I accept only Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance, but I will work with anyone whose insurance plan has out-of-network benefits.
