Professional Background

I’m a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and play therapist working with children, adolescents and their care-givers. I also work in high conflict divorce, custody and access cases. I do maintain a small case-load of adult patients, working specifically with professional artists, in women’s maternal and mental health and with individuals actively in the process of deconstructing or leaving their high control religion; specifically, charismatic and evangelical Christian fundamentalism.

After obtaining licensure as a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in the State of New York, I then became a candidate in the extremely rigorous three year training program in child and adolescent psychoanalytic psychotherapy (CAPTP) at The William Alanson White Institute in New York City. My practice is diverse and culturally sensitive. My fees can be discussed in a 30 minute complimentary phone consultation which may be arranged by emailing me on the contact form of this website. In our phone consultation, I also thoughtfully consider sliding scale rates if applicable.

I am an active member of the following professional clinical organizations: NASW (National Association of Social Workers), NYSSCSW (New York State Society of Clinical Social Work), The Clinicians Collective (NYC) Reclamation Collective.
