Licensed Psychoanalyst



“If we have become able, deep in our unconscious minds, to clear our feelings to some extent (...) of grievances, (...) then we can be at peace with ourselves and are able to love others in the true sense of the word.”
Melanie Klein
I am a Fellow of the International Psychoanalytical Association (FIPA), Psychoanalyst Member of the American Psychoanalytic Association, Member of the China American Psychoanalytic Alliance and an Associate Member of the International Psychotherapy Institute.
In NYC, I am a faculty member and supervisor in the Adult Program at the Metropolitan Institute for Training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and a faculty member at the Institute for Expressive Analysis.
Internationally, I have been presenting psychoanalytic essays on the matters of sexuality and gender, as well as teaching various courses on psychoanalytic theory and interdisciplinary topics (e.g., the intersection of psychoanalytic and queer theory).
Additionally, since 2018, I have been leading a study group on the work of Melanie Klein and her followers, as well as a clinical seminar, with an international group of psychiatrists and psychologists (some of whom are also in clinical supervision with me).
We generally meet bi-weekly for 9–10 months per year: once-a-month for the (theoretical) study group and once-a-month for the clinical seminar.
It is not required that one be a mental health professional, as these seminars are open to anyone with an interest in psychoanalytic theory and/or technique. Also, one may choose to take part in either or both of these groups.
Please contact me for more details, if participating in this study group and/or the clinical seminar might be of interest to you.
