About

I specialize in a condition called psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES) or dissociative seizures. This is a psychological condition in which emotional stress is "converted" into physical symptoms that look a lot like epileptic seizures. Most patients come to our program when they have seizures that are not responding. Once a patient is diagnosed with PNES and is referred to see me, I offer therapies designed to target the main symptoms (seizures, PTSD, depression, anxiety, and stress coping). Many adult patients diagnosed with PNES have traumatic histories and need trauma-based therapies. I am certified in prolonged exposure and use this to treat those patients.
I am the Director of the Psychogenic non-epileptic seizures Program and the Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group in New York City. I am a clinical psychologist and have specialized in the research and treatment of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures for nearly 15 years.
In 2014, I published a book for patients and loved ones called Psychogenic Non-epileptic Seizures: A Guide. It has received very positive reviews on Amazon. To my surprise, clinicians have also been using it as a resource. It has now been published into Spanish and Japanese as well.
