As a clinical psychologist, I meet my patients exactly where they are. We work together to bring about symptom relief from the issues that have led them to therapy; to change longstanding negative patterns which continue to get in the way. The goal is to create and sustain a happier, meaningful and more fulfilling life. I have worked in many NYC hospitals including Mt. Sinai and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, as well as a fellowship at the William Alanson White Institute. Using an eclectic approach, I practice cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal and psychoanalytic techniques to tailor treatment to each individual's needs.

I have extensive expertise working with individuals struggling with: intimacy/relationship issues, eating disorders, postpartum depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, loss/trauma, and parenting issues.

At the core of our work is the therapist-patient relationship, which is a useful lens into a patient's relationships with others. My approach is warm, direct and active while I work to provide a space that is safe, inviting, honest, and always collaborative. Please feel free to contact me with any and all questions.
