I came to psychoanalysis via the study of art and literature. Before completing my advanced clinical training at New York University, I studied Freud and Lacan via the Center for the Study of Psychoanalysis and Culture at SUNY Buffalo, and received clinical training in Lacanian psychoanalysis with the Freudian School of Quebec. Prior to private practice I provided trauma-informed gender-, trans-, and LGBQ+ affirmative care at Callen-Lorde Community Health Center, and also worked with individuals and couples experiencing compulsive sexual behaviors, intimacy difficulties, and addiction. I am presently continuing post-graduate training in Lacanian psychoanalysis in New York City.
