Personal Statement:

As an individual or couple's/marital specialist, I help patients learn the ironic concept of 'tolerating intimacy' and in so doing, obtain/enjoy the personal relationship you want and... deserve. Did show for CABLEVISION called 'WHY COUPLES FIGHT/TOLERATING INTIMACY" and I have also recently written several articles: "Body-Mind Strategies For Dealing With Depression and Anxiety". Body—Mind Strategies for Dealing With Anxiety and Depression and "Couple Relationship Problems With A Solution": Couple Relationship Problems With A Solution.

The following is a link to an external article which may be of interest: Science Says Lasting Relationships Come Down To Two Basic Traits

Finally, would like to note LA Times article, "How Not To Say The Wrong Thing" to people struggling with cancer or any other debilitating disease or condition: How Not to Say the Wrong Thing

I have volunteered as a couples facilitator for the New York Disaster Counseling Coalition, Inc. where I worked with couples within the law enforcement community on resiliency building, communication skills, listening and empathy.

My patients find my caring and direct approach refreshing and come away with new partnership skills that enhances "communicating"/intimacy. In lonely, stuck relationships, people often go outward to affairs when they can go inward, risking to be seen and see each other perhaps for the first time. THAT can be very romantic and exciting.

I am both a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst who is conversational and relates in a caring focused manner. I have years of experience working in both inpatient and outpatient hospital clinics and private practice. I look forward to meeting you. Call my cell 914-403-2926 to arrange appointment.
