I believe what is accomplished in psychotherapy is co-created by both the patient and the therapist. I am interactive and relational. I have training and experience in a wide variety of issues and have worked with people from many different backgrounds. I believe in tailoring the treatment to the individual rather than trying to fit the person into a particular theory.

Therapy is about self-actualization. There are many roadblocks to becoming the person we want to be. I see therapy as a way of understanding and eliminating these blocks. Self-knowledge provides us with choices. When we understand our patterns, it becomes easier to get past them.

I specialize in LGBTQ issues and work with individuals and couples. My practice is diverse in terms of age, ethnicity, and sexuality and gender identification. I have extensive experience with trauma and survivors of sexual abuse.

I love my work and have a natural curiousity and interest in people.
Bio
I am an interactive therapist practicing in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn, NY. I have over twenty years of experience working with adults.


Before opening my private practice, I worked at an LGBTQ Therapy Center in NYC as Coordinator of Clinical Services. I was also Director of Student Training, a supervisor and psychotherapist.

As an undergraduate at Brooklyn College, I was one of a handful of women who fought and succeeded in setting up one of the first Women's Center's and Women Studies Programs in the CUNY system. I helped set up a free Peer Counseling Program for both students, staff, and the community. I was trained as a counselor and supervisor and trainer. The program grew from a group of 6 women to over 500 counselors.
