Listen deeply, speak softly and without judgment.


About Me

Looking back, it is clear that my life's work prepared me to become a therapist. All the various jobs that I've held have helped me to understand and to relate to people from all walks of life and with all sorts of challenges that life presents. I served in the U.S. Navy, drove a cab, was a successful business executive, and am a husband and father who understands the joys and challenges of family life. For the past 22 years I have been practicing mindfulness meditation, which has helped me to listen deeply and to speak softly and without judgment. I feel privileged to be able to do this work.

I have over 12 years of experience, including five years at the Child Study Center, a division of the Bronx Lebanon Hospital. Graduated from Columbia University with two masters degrees, an MSW and an MBA.

Trained in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy, Family Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy, DBT skills, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for anxiety, Emotional Freedom Technique, Somatic Experiencing and Brainspotting - modalities that heal trauma.

          Relationships

The test of a relationship is in the answer to a fundamental question; are you really there for me? So the overriding goal in couple and family therapy is to help family members regain (and sometimes gain for the first time) intimacy and a secure attachment with each other. Learn More...

   Trauma, Anxiety &     Depression
Neuroscience has shown that focusing on the relationship between the mind and the body can heal negative emotions. So in my work, I utilize Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Somatic Experiencing in order to promote deeper and move complete healing. Learn More...

        Mindfulness

Mindfulness Meditation is a gentle discipline of focusing on your breath with awareness.  It helps you to be present, and to pay attention in a non-judgmental way. You learn to let go of regrets about the past and worries about the future by focusing on the present moment. Learn More...
