Personal Statement

I begin each therapy by trying to understand where the client is and with what he or she is needing help. My thinking is informed by over 25 years of experience in individual, group, family and couples' therapy. I work collaboratively with the client and welcome feedback as to what is and isn't helping in the therapy process. Together we look at present relationships to see patterns of conflicts, as well as family history.

Specialties of mine over the years have included new mothers, parenting, bereavement, and working with the newly divorced. More recently, I have been focusing on eating disorders and addiction, drawing on modalities such as Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in addition to Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I have given talks in NYC about Gaming Addiction and Harm Reduction, a compelling alternative to abstinence based addiction treatment.

Also, a newer specialty of mine, in addition to eating disorders and addiction, is sex therapy with couples. We know a lot more now about the prevalence of low sexual desire, especially in women; the impact of past trauma on sexuality; the importance of addressing the sexual part of a relationship simultaneous to working on other issues; and that orgasm being the goal of every sexual encounter can actually inhibit orgasms and sexual satisfaction, to name a few things.

I ask all the couples that I work with about their sex life. If they would like to include this as one of the focuses of the therapy, I first conduct a thorough sexual history with each partner, alone. Next, in a joint session, I discuss how each partner's sexual experiences are interacting with the sexual experiences of the other. And finally, together we devise a plan for improving sexual fulfillment. This is all done while other targeted areas are addressed as well.

More and more I ask about sexuality in my work with individuals, hopefully inviting a dialogue about a topic that can be difficult to discuss.
