Selecting a psychologist is a highly personal decision, one that’s often made under duress. I encourage you to take the time you deserve to make an informed decision about your therapy.
I specialize in helping people develop more satisfying relationships. The working relationship between client and therapist is itself a medium through which it may be possible to learn how to better relate to other significant people in your life.
I believe the stereotypical image of the distant, silent therapist is outdated and neglectful of clients’ needs for engagement. I actively converse with clients and offer feedback and direction.
A significant focus of my practice involves working with gay men, and I practice from an LGBT-affirmative perspective.
Your selection of a psychologist may best be informed by relevant information about his or her qualifications and your experience of feeling comfortable and understood as you begin therapy. I invite you to explore this site to gain a sense of my mindset and approach. If you think that I may match your needs, feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule an initial consultation.
Social Responsibility, Practice Consultation, & Clinical Supervision
In addition to practicing psychotherapy, I serve as the executive director of TherapySafetyNet, provide consultation to other clinicians for private practice business development and modernization, and provide clinical supervision, both on a private basis to licensed colleagues and to students in training through my adjunct faculty appointment to Teachers College, Columbia University.
