Upon graduation from social work school, I worked with adolescents who lived in group homes run by Covenant House and then later with runaways in Covenant Houses’s Under 21 program. While pursuing and completing training in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy, I was working at a mental health clinic located in East New York. Initially I was hired and worked as a staff therapist and eventually I became the clinical director. I was there for eight years during the time when both the AIDS epidemic and the use of crack began to impact life in New York.
Currently I am in full-time private practice. I treat adolescents and adults and do individual and couples work. In addition to my practice and teaching, I have performed consulting work and supervision for CASA at Manhattan Family Court and IHI, a mental health agency servicing the LGBT community.
