I currently maintain private practices in Manhattan and Brooklyn. I work with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, issues of modern life, bipolar disorder, ADHD, trauma, couples therapy and work with Synaesthetic Surround, a technique I researched and developed that involves the use of light, sound and vibration to influences brainwaves to induce deep, accelerated change and growth. I drew from my background in psychology, critical theory, and art in the creation of Synaesthetic Surround. I also conduct research as a Research Scientist at New York University and am Founder and Director of BREUKELEN THERAPEUTIC, a center for therapies including Psychology, Psychiatry, Acupuncture and Massage Therapy. My training and practice include a range of psychological techniques including psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, Buddhist and mindfulness forms. I received my doctoral degree in psychology from Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Yeshiva University and a Master of Arts in critical theory from New York University. My research has won awards including the William James Award of the Council on Spiritual Practices and the Dean Morton Berger Memorial Prize for Excellence in Research. I have presented papers in various contexts including the Towards a Science of Consciousness Conference as well as published my research in The Journal of Consciousness Studies. I completed a post-doctoral fellowship as well as an internship at New York University Medical Center – Bellevue Hospital where I worked with trauma at The Program for Survivors of Torture, mind-body techniques at the Pain Clinic, cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic techniques at outpatient clinics, and with couples and families at the Child Study Center. I also worked at the Anxiety & Traumatic Stress Program at the Payne Whitney Clinic of New York Presbyterian Hospital – Cornell Medical Center and at the Center for Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapy.
