About

I am a seasoned psychologist with extensive experience in helping children, adolescents, adults, as well as couples and families. I have been described as warm, supportive and straightforward. In my work, I use a collaborative, strengths-based and relational approach. I was trained at Columbia University, New York University and the Ackerman Institute for the Family. I have served as a faculty member at Teachers College, Columbia University, Adelphi University and New York University. I am dedicated to training the next generation of psychologists and counselors as well as continually learning and improving my skills.
I have a specialty in addictive disorders, particularly helping families work together to resolve associated challenges. I also accept clients with broader concerns of losing a loved one, reconsidering careers or chronic health concerns. I conduct psychological assessments for immigration, parenting arrangements and career counseling.
I believe that growth and change is possible through therapy. I am looking forward to evaluating your needs to develop an individualized plan. Please call me to discuss any questions you may have. I am committed to helping you make changes that enhance your life.
