Announcement icon During the COVID-19 pandemic I am conducting sessions via video and phone and am licensed to do so in the states of New York and California.
Are overwhelming emotions like anxiety and depression getting in the way of relationships, career, or your ability to get through the day? I am a licensed clinical psychologist who works with adults 18+ to explore, understand, and change those feelings or patterns that are blocking greater fulfillment and clarity. I often work with young and mid-life adults who struggle with low mood or esteem, stress in work or academic settings, relationship conflicts, uncertainty about long term goals, and impulsive behaviors. I also have specific expertise in trauma/PTSD, substance use, and emotions that are volatile or difficult to control.
Connection and compatibility with your therapist is crucial. I welcome phone consultations free of cost to determine if I am a good fit for you. I adopt an active, non-judgmental, and evidence-based approach. My training is grounded in CBT and DBT, and I frequently incorporate mindfulness and acceptance strategies.
I received my doctorate from Rutgers University and my B.A. from Yale University. I completed internship at the James J Peters VAMC and postdoctoral fellowship at the Center for Cognitive & Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Previously, I worked at the World Trade Center clinic at Bellevue Hospital and was on faculty at NYU Langone Medical Center.
