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 actively converse with clients and offer feedback and direction, while also providing room for clients to self-reflect.
A significant focus of my practice involves working with gay men, and I practice from a gay-affirmative perspective. Other areas of focus include college student mental health, depression, anxiety, recovery from trauma, social isolation, and feelings of insecurity, inadequacy, and other negative views of the self.

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.
Teaching, Clinical Supervision & Consultation
Through my adjunct faculty appointment to Teachers College, Columbia University, I am currently teaching Fieldwork in Clinical Psychology, a course designed to foster students’ self-reflective abilities as they begin to apply clinical theory to practice. In recent years, I also supervised students in training, and continue to offer both clinical supervision and consultation to licensed colleagues.
