I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, with over 40 years of experience working with individuals, couples, families, and groups. I am the Founding Director of The New York Milton H. Erickson Society for Psychotherapy and Hypnosis, and on the faculty of The Integrative Medicine Department at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital in New York City.

I am certified by The American Society for Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH), and am an Approved Clinical Consultant for ASCH. I studied with Dr. Milton Erickson.  I have been teaching courses, conducting workshops, and supervising students in hypnosis and hypnotherapy for over 40 years.

I am trained psychoanalytically, as well as in many other psychotherapeutic approaches, including Clinical Hypnosis, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.

As a therapist, I am respectful of my patients and their individuality. I work creatively and sensitively, and actively facilitate an atmosphere of safety and trust, where people can transform their lives.
