Eric believes that finding the right therapist is an important step towards making change in your life and exploring the possibilities that await you. Eric creates a warm and open atmosphere in the therapy room as he works with couples, adult individuals, and adolescents to examine their past experiences, current challenges, and the next steps they’d like to take in their lives. Mindfulness training is an important aspect of Eric’s approach; he often urges clients to explore practices such as meditation and yoga, as he believes that these can help to open one’s mind and free oneself of unhelpful habits of thought. Eric is currently in his final year pursuing a master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy at Mercy College and has trained as a sex therapist at the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy and the Ackerman Institute. He has also studied psychoanalysis and narrative therapy and brings elements of these approaches into his practice. Eric sees clients of all races, religions, and sexual orientations. He is kink and sex positive. In addition to his work as a therapist intern at North Brooklyn MFT, Eric is a widely published writer of fiction and non-fiction and an adjunct associate professor of writing at Pratt Institute. He holds an MFA in fiction writing from Syracuse University and his work has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Playboy.com, Guernica Magazine, and many other magazines and journals. Eric enjoys bringing his experience as a writer and writing teacher into the therapy room, particularly when working with clients who work in the arts and other creative fields.
