I am a psychotherapist in Greenwich Village, with offices on University Place near Union Square. I have been in practice for over two decades.
In my work I stress empathy, mutuality, and openness. I see people of all ages, and with issues ranging from depression, to relationship concerns, and to problems of adjustment in work and life. I am straight but considered gay friendly with a number of lesbian and gay patients. Most of my work is with adults who bring all kinds of issues and concerns into therapy, but I also treat quite a few couples in crisis and some adolescents.
I would say my motto is that we live life looking forward but can only understand it looking back.
Experience You Can Trust
I am a Training and Supervising Analyst at TRISP in New York, and a Professor of History at John Jay College and the Graduate Center at The City University of New York. I have written a number of books, from a psychological study of Abraham Lincoln, to a book based on in-depth interviews with World Trade Center Disaster survivors, and the definitive biography of Heinz Kohut, the leading thinker in the creation of contemporary psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.
