I am a clinical psychologist in Cambridge, Massachusetts practicing intensive, exploratory psychotherapy. I work with clients who recognize their emotional difficulties in living as related to intimate personal issues that they are unable usefully to understand and thus resolve. Psychoanalytically trained at New York University and an Assistant Clinical Professor in Psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School, I continue since having lived and practiced in New York City, to teach, supervise, and practice this type of work in the Harvard Square area of Cambridge.

I view people's psychological difficulties and emotional imprisonment as due to intimately personal issues that they are too afraid, ashamed of, or guilty about to allow themselves to recognize. We work to bring these issues to light in an atmosphere of safety to promote their freedom from them.

As an existentialist, I believe that the chief characteristics that distinguish my practice are, first, the uniqueness of who I am and, secondly, the singular personality, life experiences, and struggles that each of the clients I work with present to us. I view each intensive therapy as an unprecedented journey.
