Licensed Psychotherapist & Certified School Psychologist (New York, USA), Masters & Doctoral Degrees from Columbia University, providing Interdisciplinary-Based Psychology: Relational Psychodynamic Therapy, Sleep Wellness (Assessment & Treatment), & Research-Based Practices.

My approach and the affiliated professionals under my supervision provide the space to explore the mind-body-place of a person's life experiences within relationships that are contributing to ways of thinking, emotions that can be promoted to actual feelings, and actions that can lead to transformative experiences. We embrace, among other areas of research-based practices, the following theoretical orientations: Talmudic Halacha, Human Paleontology, Psycho-Analysis, Sociology, Architectural Theory, & the Natural Sciences.

Areas of specialty include: anger regulation, relationships, anxiety, depression, sleep health, and trauma.
