I am Licensed as a Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the states of New York (LCSW-R) and Florida (LCSW).

My practice focuses in work with clients who seek help with any of the following:

  • Gay Men's Issues
  • Couples Therapy and Relationship Issues (Couples in Crisis)
  • Performing and Creative Artist Concerns
  • Depression, Low Confidence, and Self-Esteem Issues
  • Anxiety and Stress
  • Loss and Bereavement
  • Caretakers Caring for Elderly Parents and Relatives
  • People Living with HIV and AIDS
  • HIV-Negative Gay Men's Issues
  • Sexual Problems
  • Transgender Sex Reassignment Surgery (SRS) Considerations
  • Drugs and Alcohol
  • Sexual Abuse Trauma
  • Other Traumas

Affiliations:

I am an active member of the following professional organizations:

  • National Association of Social Workers (NASW)
      - National, New York City, and Florida Chapters
  • New York State Society for Clinical Social Work (NYSSCSW)

Education:

I received my graduate training at New York University School of Social Work and post-graduate training at the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Study Center in Manhattan. I have also received post-graduate training and supervision in couples and family therapy and cognitive and behavioral therapeutic techniques. I was awarded a Post-Master's Certificate in "End of Life Care" from New York University School of Social Work and the Soros Open Society Institute.

Writing & Teaching:

In addition to providing psychotherapy with clients, for seven years, I served as Consulting Editor for Social Work, the Journal of the National Association of Social Workers, on the psychological issues pertaining to Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Communities, Couples in Crisis, HIV and AIDS, End of Life Care, Loss and Bereavement, and Chronic and Terminal Medical Illnesses. I have also taught continuing education workshops and provided supervision to mental health professionals on the psychological treatment of gay men's issues, the psychological and spiritual aspects of pain management and chronic illnesses, and geriatric care issues. (Click here for a list of my writings and presentations).

Psychotherapy Approach:

Because psychotherapy focuses on growth, I utilize an affirmative therapy approach that is based on each person's unique mental health needs. By pulling from a framework of dynamic, analytic, and cognitive and behavioral techniques, I develop an individualized psychotherapy process for each person. Depending on the nature of one's issues, psychotherapy can be short term or longer term. (Click here for more information on the psychotherapy process and fees)
