Feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed? Looking to cope with & conquer these difficulties? Together, you and I will overcome hesitancy & fears in a safe and supportive environment. You'll find my therapeutic style is warm and empowering. In psychotherapy with me, you can achieve your potential by confronting difficulties, becoming more assertive, & learning practical skills. Collaboratively, we will focus on the problem, develop specific goals, & a personalized treatment plan to address your needs. I am a licensed cognitive behavioral psychologist specializing in short-term, research-based treatments for sexual problems and relationships, anxiety and depression, and children's difficulties including ADHD.
My clients learn new ways to adaptively think critically & act productively. This enhanced skill "toolbox" helps my clients cope with stress & negative emotional reactions. I also conduct intensive therapy for phobias, panic, and OCD.
My PhD in Clinical & School Psychology is from Hofstra University. I completed a postdoctoral fellowship in anxiety at Columbia University, while consulting through the NY Office of Mental Health, training therapists in ADHD treatments. I've presented my research at professional psychology conferences, & am an adjunct professor at local universities.

Professional Connections

I had the pleasure of working and collaborating with Dr. Hoffman at Kings County Hospital Center where we were both supervising psychologists. There are many people in New York City and on this website who claim to be trained in or know how to do CBT. Dr. Hoffman is one of the rare few who can actually back that claim up with cutting edge training and research experience, years of practical experience, and now a board certification to prove it. He is also another rarity in that he is dual trained to work with both adults and children. Anyone looking for a therapist in Queens in incredibly lucky that he has chosen to set up his practice in a local neighborhood, providing access to truly evidence based treatment right in the borough.
