I work with people from all walks of life, including young adults, college and graduate students, professionals, and people in the arts. I earned my doctorate (Psy.D.) in Clinical Psychology from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and am a New York State licensed psychologist.
Clinically, I have provided acute and long-term inpatient care in New York City hospitals, worked with children and families at the Early Childhood Center of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and conducted forensic assessments for the courts. These experiences allow me to work with clients on issues ranging from relationship difficulties to serious mental illness.
My graduate research investigated the transition from high school to college, focusing on the development of depression and bipolar disorder in first-year college students. I also conducted research on stigma and sexual minority stress and assisted in creating empirically supported treatments for people in the LGBTQ community.
I continued my training through the William Alanson White Institute, where I was selected to complete a Postdoctoral Fellowship in psychodynamic psychotherapy. I held an additional fellowship at Rose Hill Psychological Services, and continued developing specialized experience working with college and graduate students.
In addition to my private practice work, I am an Adjunct Professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, where I teach master’s-level therapists in training.
