I am in private practice as a licensed psychologist, supervisor, and consultant. My orientation is a relational-psychoanalytic and family systems approach. I am a pioneer along with Bella Savran in the development of groups for children of Holocaust survivors and intergenerational groups.
I have led such groups and trained other therapists in the United States, Israel, Sweden, and Germany. Establishing the first training program for Psychotherapy with Generations of the Holocaust and Related Traumas for the Training Institute for Mental Health in New York City, I also trained mental health professionals in the treatment of historical trauma in the Native American, Armenian, African-American and Cambodian communities.
In my private practice in New York City, I focus on long-term psychoanalytic psychotherapy with diverse emotional and creative challenges. I help talented people reach their potential, help insecure individuals feel better about themselves, help families to overcome obstacles in their multigenerational businesses, counsel individuals to gain understanding in order to engage in satisfying intimate relationships, and work with couples to overcome seemingly insurmountable conflicts. What I most enjoy is helping couples through the hardship of infertility. I continue to work with individuals challenged with PTSD, lead groups for Second and Third Generation of Holocaust Survivors, and train mental-health clinicians and medical personnel to work with intergenerational after-affects of trauma.
I do consultations for local, national and international organizations, and am a frequent speaker and trainer for professionals and the general public.
