In my office, located in Union Square, N.Y., I treat children - starting at age 3 - adults, couples, and polycules. My clinical work encompasses a wide array of issues, such as trauma, anxiety, depression, and relationship difficulties. Over the years, I have also accumulated extensive experience working with people with a wide range of genders, including with trans children and trans adults, and with queer sexualities. My practice includes a racially and ethnically diverse range of individuals, including immigrants.
I trained as a clinical psychologist in NY after moving to the United States from Greece and Cyprus. After receiving my doctorate in clinical psychology (Yeshiva University), I completed my psychoanalytic training at the New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis.
My professional life involves first and foremost a deep commitment to my clinical practice. I also have an active academic life which involves publishing my own theoretical work and giving public lectures/podcasts/interviews in my areas of expertise. I contribute to my field by serving on the editorial boards of academic journals; leading study and writing groups for colleagues; supervising colleagues' clinical work; and conducting faculty development workshops in my areas of specialty. I serve on the faculty of the NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis and teach in other psychoanalytic training programs. In 2021, I co-organized the conference Laplanche in the States: the Sexual and the Cultural, the first US-based conference dedicated to the work of Jean Laplanche. Since 2016, I have served as co-executor of the Muriel Dimen Literary Estate which administers Dr. Dimen's archive, the Muriel Dimen Prize (through Div 39), and the Muriel Dimen Grant (through the New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis.)
