I am a Clinical Psychologist with almost 40 years of experience. I received my PhD in Clinical Psychology from St. John's University. I also earned a certificate in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy from New York University's PostDoctoral Program. Licensed in New York State, I maintain a full time private practice, with offices in Rockville Centre, Long Island, and in Greenwich Village, Manhattan.
For the last 20 years, I have received specialized, intensive training in mind-body medicine and trauma. While I see adults, older adolescents, and couples for a variety of issues, my practice specialty is helping people cope with loss of all kinds. I work with many people suffering from traumatic grief. I also work with many who are dying or struggling with a serious illness, and try to assist them and their families to live as fully, richly, and deeply as possible.
My personal belief is that every person is a composite of body, mind and spirit, and my work reflects this philosophy.
I have written and lectured widely on grief and bereavement. I have also trained professionals in graduate and post graduate classes on how to work with the dying and bereaved.
For the last five years, I have partnered with another grief therapist to form theGriefChannel.com, an internet resource for grievers. We also run grief groups and retreats.
