I am a Clinical Psychologist licensed in the states of New York (#021100), Connecticut (#3513), and Massachusetts (#10516) who specializes in the treatment of adolescents, young adults, and families. I earned my Ph.D. from the New School for Social Research in New York City. My Master’s degrees are in Mental Health and Behavioral Medicine from Boston University School of Medicine, and in Psychology from the New School for Social Research. I completed a Psychoanalytic Fellowship at the Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research, where I am currently a Candidate in Adult Psychoanalysis. I have received specialized training in Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, and psychodynamic modalities. My approach is broadly psychodynamic, integrating Cognitive Behavioral and Dialectical Behavioral perspectives and techniques uniquely tailored for each individual.
My clinical training focused on work children and adolescents includes inpatient and outpatient work at various hospitals including New York Presbyterian Hospital – Payne Whitney Westchester, Beth Israel Medical Center, Boston Medical Center, and Hillcrest Adolescent Detention Center in San Mateo, CA. I have also received specialized training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with adults at St. Luke’s – Roosevelt Hospital and the Zucker Hillside Hospital – Long Island Jewish Health System.
Following this work, I pursued work with a college population, and completed a pre-doctoral internship at Fordham University Counseling and Psychological Services where I developed an expertise for work with adolescents and young adults, including those in the transition from high school to college. I continued this work during my post-doctoral clinical fellowship in university mental health at Sarah Lawrence College where I conducted assessments, individual, and group psychotherapy. I am currently in private practice specializing in work with adolescents and young adults.
