My private practice is located in Amherst, MA.  I trained at the Metropolitan Center for Mental Health for five years, where I treated people suffering from anxiety, depression, sexual dysfunction, trauma such as physical and sexual abuse, and insomnia. I interned at Inter-Care, a substance abuse clinic, and Covenant House, a homeless shelter for adolescents. For over twenty years I worked in corporate finance as a bond analyst covering the healthcare and other industries, and did mergers and acquisitions. Professional affiliations include the Society of Behavioral Sleep Medicine and the New York State Society for Clinical Social Work.


A relational psychotherapist, I did post-graduate training at the William Alanson White Institute. Additionally, I studied at the Metropolitan Institute for Training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, another post-graduate facility. At Oxford University and the University of Pennsylvania, I studied sleep disorders.

I hold a Masters in Social Work (MSW) from Fordham University Graduate School of Social Services with a concentration in substance abuse treatment.  At Fordham, I was inducted into the Phi Kappa Phi honor society for achieving grades in the top 10% of the class.

My business education includes an MBA from Columbia University Business School.  I also hold the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation.

I graduated college from the University of Chicago and high school from the Phillips Exeter Academy.

My Approach

The most vital aspect of treatment is a strong working relationship. In a safe, nonjudgmental environment, we will explore conflicts and obstacles that block you from achieving satisfaction. We will work to end your recurring pain and to find a greater sense of well-being.

Together, we will develop a treatment plan to suit you individual goals and needs.
