A Licensed Professional Here to Guide You

I’ve always been fascinated by relationships.  Over the years tailored to the person or couple’s needs I’ve helped many people which is very satisfying.


I am a clinical instructor in the Department of Psychiatry, New York University Medical Center and was on the teaching faculty of the Ackerman Institute for Family Therapy for 25 years.  I am a member of the Mental Health Professional Group (MHPG) of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and Past Chair of ASRM’s Membership Committee.  I have gone through infertility myself and understand the difficulties for the individuals and the consequences for the individual and for the couple in all aspects of their lives.



I am in private practice in New York City.
