About Me

While we might long for changes in life, making change can be painful and scary. Therapy is a collaborative process, and I will parther with you on this journey. My practice focuses on treating intimacy/relationship problems, sexual addiction/compulsivity, alcohol/substance abuse, codependency/co-addiction, personality issues, childhood traumas, anxiety/depression and career/workplace concerns. I also specialize in working with the LGBT community. My career began with an MBA working on Wall Street. Since 1995 I've been practicing psychotherapy as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and received my MSW from Columbia University. I'm a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and I'm trained in EMDR. Both approaches focus on trauma resolution. In addition, I hold certifications in Group Psychotherapist (CGP), Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) and, I'm a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT). The treatment modalities I utilize include individual, couples & group psychotherapy. I lead both a weekly Gay Men's Psychotherapy Group where members practice having new experiences relating to one another in the here & now, and a weekly recovery group for Gay Men struggling with Sex Addiction or alcohol/drug linked sexual behavior. This group offers an opportunity to have new experiences relating to others while working on sexual health.
