I’m an EMDRIA-Approved Consultant, and an Approved Trainer for the Parnell Institute.
I specialize in helping people heal from trauma. I am experienced in dealing with childhood traumas, including physical and sexual abuse, neglect, and emotional deficits, as well as more recent events such as accidents, rape and other frightening experiences. I have a particular interest in working with people who experienced developmental/relational trauma.
I am also a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) and am trained in Internal Family Systems (IFS), Clinical Hypnosis, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), Brainspotting and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. I have a certificate in psychoanalysis from the Manhattan Institute for Psychoanalysis.
I am on the faculty of the National Institute for Psychotherapies (NIP) Integrative Trauma Treatment Program. I have a private practice in Greenwich Village in New York City and I am available for individual and group supervision.
