I am a warm and insightful psychologist who focuses on helping people make significant changes in personal and professional areas of their lives. I work with adults, couples, and families who are dealing with transitions or want to maximize their full potential. In the first session I identify the areas which are most crucial to focus on and the approach which will be most useful for reaching your goals quickly. We then jointly create a plan of action for reaching your objectives.
In addition to my clinical experience I teach psychotherapy courses to graduate psychology students and hold a Director of Mental Health Position at NYU Lutheran Family Medicine where I teach physicians how to assess and address psychological needs of their patients.
I bring this teaching expertise into my clinical work when an explanation or insight on the psychological theory might be a useful way for us to progress the treatment at a faster rate.
