  • My specialties include evidence-based treatment of insomnia, sexual dysfunction and addiction. Many people also work with me to overcome anxiety and depression.
  • Men and women seek treatment with me to understand what causes their depression and anxiety and how to overcome it. We explore conflicts outside your awareness to develop alternative perspectives, to clarify goals and to learn what obstacles block you from achieving satisfaction. Together, we work to end recurring habits and relationship conflicts to find a greater sense of control. My patients create meaning through self-discovery to manage stress better and to live fuller lives.
  • A case in point was a man in his middle thirties complaining of persistent insomnia. Six months before he came to his first therapy appointment, he had lost his well-paying job in a large New York company. He fell asleep easily, yet awoke at two or three am and remained awake, sometimes until dawn. Despite feeling exhausted, he succeeded at landing a job which paid better than his previous position. Yet the pattern had been set, and his early-morning awakenings continued. After a carefully assessment, we developed a treatment plan that resulted in a restful night's sleep.
