I have always been interested in people. I love learning about what makes them unique. I find it such a privilege to do this work and be let into your life.
People have described me as being someone they can open up to. Even if you have a difficult time articulating your needs and feelings, I have a knack for helping you get there. This goes for my work with couples, too: I’m a natural translator who can help you communicate, even when you feel like you and your partner are speaking different languages.
I care deeply about understanding, supporting, and guiding you towards a life that feels better for you.
I am passionate about supporting people who are curious and committed to learning more about themselves.
If you are wondering why things are going the way they are, I want to help you figure that out. Let’s explore what is keeping you in holding patterns so that you can realize your full potential and make the changes you want to experience in your life.
Here’s a bit more about me:
I have provided both short- 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.
I earned my doctorate (Psy.D.) in clinical psychology from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Yeshiva University. I am a New York State licensed psychologist.
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.
More recently, I have been quoted in The New York Times and featured in The Wall Street Journal. I have also been quoted in HuffPost and Bustle.
I have held academic appointments at the City University of New York, where I taught master’s level courses in psychotherapy technique, as well as at the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, where I supervise Ph.D. students.
