Are you hearing voices or having other unusual experiences, and is this causing you intense anxiety, depression, or interfering with achieving your goals? Do people accuse you of being paranoid when really they are at fault? Or are you concerned for a loved one, who seems to be experiencing these things and you don't know how to help? I avoid using labels, unhelpful diagnosis or judgment. I have helped hundreds of people with psychosis overcome their distress and achieve their goals, without shame or stigma. I approach the treatment of psychosis from a person centered, recovery oriented perspective.

I do not believe that you are sick, wrong, or bad. And I will work to help you achieve your goals while maintaining your sense of yourself and personal identity. I am an expert in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Psychosis with 18 years of experience working in both London and the US.

I am the Founder & Director of NYC CBTp, a private practice dedicated to providing this therapy in NYC. Dr. Jenna H. Marshall, PhD and Dr. Roshane Wright, PhD are also fully trained and experienced in this approach, and work as part of our team. Dr. Shveta Mittal, PhD also works with depression and anxiety using CBT.

Professional Connections

I had the pleasure of working and collaborating with Dr. Riggs at Kings County Hospital Center, where we were both supervisor psychologists. Dr. Riggs is a compassionate and intelligent person who aims to empower her patients with skills and techniques that directly address their most difficult concerns. She has a gift in helping others understand the complexity of mental health issues, and helping them cope with their difficulties in a down-to-earth, personable manner.

I have worked with and admired Dr. Riggs for the past 4 years. I find her to be an accessible clinician with astute observations and assessments. I recommend her strongly, having observed her application of CBT for psychosis to be successful.
