Issues I Treat


  • Loss or Grief External link

    In New York I lived through the AIDS pandemic and 9/11 working with people dealing with PTSD. Today we are living through another pandemic with Covid-19, as well as major socio-political upheaval. These events profoundly changed me as a person and as a therapist. Honing my skills in working with people dealing with trauma and loss became a focal point of my training as a therapist. Trauma and loss are often the roots of complicated mental health issues such as PTSD, anxiety and depression.
