Individual Psychotherapy, Psychoanalysis, Couples Counseling, and Marriage Counseling


    Appointments in Cambridge, MA and New York City 

I see patients in both Cambridge, MA and in New York City. I am in my Cambridge office (32 Hawthorn Street) on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, and in my New York City office (10 West 74th Street) Wednesdays and Thursdays of each week. In Cambridge my office is four blocks from Harvard Square and two blocks from Lesley University. In New York City it is in the Upper West Side at 74th and Central Park West.

I have 31 years experience doing therapy with individuals and couples, specializing in Relational and Solution Based Therapy for individuals and in Couples and Infidelity Counseling. I also see couples and individuals where Asperger's syndrome is an issue. I teach professionals in training institutes in Boston and New York City.  Below are links to specialty areas:

     I use an interactive approach in individual and couples therapy. My work is solution based with feedback about where you, or your relationship could benefit from changing. I provide tools for you to do the necessary work. I aim to create a relaxed and safe space to focus on three main areas of work: helping individuals and couples feel better and cope with painful situations; helping to understand why difficulties keep repeating, despite successes in other areas; going beyond understanding and insight to learn how to make effective changes to improve your life and relationship. 

       I work with people from wide ranging academic, and professional fields throughout the Boston and New York City communities. On the following pages I describe my approach to specific problems.  If you have any questions, please call to discuss if making an appointment would be appropriate for you. Regardless of what types of therapy you have tried before, or how long you have waited to begin therapy, it is my firm belief that change can occur at any stage in our lives, careers or relationships.
