I am a psychoanalyst in private practice in New York City. I have taught at Eugene Lang College for many years and have served as associate provost of The New School. I am also a clinical associate professor at the NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis and the NYU School of Social Work, as well as a faculty member at the Jungian Psychoanalytic Association and the Object Relations Institute for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. I very much enjoy and value the opportunity to teach students how to analyze psychologically the unconscious in dreams, myths, literature, and culture.
