About me

I am a Psychologist, Coach and Writer. I merge psychology and the principles of consciousness in my work. I was trained at New York University and the New York Psychoanalytic Institute. I have worked as a rapper, restaurant manager and a global communications director. I draw from this rich diverse experience as I enter my client’s world.

I have a reverence for the human mind and spirit and I’m passionate about each person’s unique path to healing and optimization. I also teach Yoga and Meditation. For free resources and a more in depth look into my work please visit www.wildshrink.com

How I work

My therapeutic approach is respectful, gentle and eclectic. I draw from diverse knowledge systems including psychoanalytic psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and neuroscience. Truth and fun will lead the way in our work so expect both tears and laughter.

The process is about new insights but also how to integrate those insights and become them. In other words our work is about meaningful lasting change:  you growing and expanding into your optimal, best life. The tools gained will take you all the way through and you are encouraged to share them with your loved ones. Discounted rates available for online work.

Do I need therapy?

To help with this question email me at askthewildshrink@gmail.com for a 3 minute self administered test. But, the bottom line is that therapy accelerates growth. We may get there on our own but therapy gets us there quicker and less painfully. Remember to shop around. Not all psychologists are the same. If you don’t feel your therapist gets you or if you don’t feel “gotten” after a few sessions consider finding someone new.
