The psychologist Erik Erikson wrote that at every stage of life there is the potential for a “new miracle of vigorous unfolding.” My goal is to help patients grow and unfold into more self-aware, compassionate and courageous versions of themselves.
I offer treatment for adults and couples at group practices in Midtown and Brooklyn. I create a supportive environment in which clients can identify the challenges and blocks that may be preventing them from reaching their goals or living their lives in a satisfying way. My approach is relational, but I also use elements of Cognitive Behavior Therapy. I have done advanced training in interpersonal psychoanalytic psychotherapy at the William Alanson White Institute and in couples therapy through the Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy.
I write regularly about mental health for the New York Times. My writing greatly informs my work with individuals and couples—I am constantly considering how the real world influences our connections to the people around us. And, as a former Time Inc. magazine editor, I am attuned to the challenges people who work in creative and demanding careers face on a daily basis.
