Do you have trouble getting what you want? Do you feel repeatedly disappointed by others or unhappy in relationships? Do you get inhibited or intimated to have your wishes fulfilled? Do you become anxious, depressed, discouraged, angry, or sad when you can't get your needs met? Do you withdraw, use drugs/alcohol or engage in other problematic behaviors? Are these problems a pattern for you? I can help you get what you want, which will help you lead a more gratifying and enjoyable life.
I specialize in psychodynamic psychotherapy, which helps people identify their wishes, their fears, and the problematic and repeated ways they respond to their fears (e.g., problematic relations, anxiety, depression, social withdrawal, addiction). The primary goal of therapy is to help people get what they want.
I offer brief (16-20 sessions) and open-ended therapy, depending on the nature of the problems you want to address. To book an appointment or to find out more about my services call me at 646-663-4763 or email me at
