About

I am a clinical psychologist with extensive experience working with adults of all ages and backgrounds struggling with a wide range of concerns.  I use a collaborative evidence-based approach, meaning that I am committed to providing the most effective treatment to get you to your goals.  I specialize in providing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a treatment which aims to reduce symptoms and improve wellbeing by cultivating flexibility in our thinking and behavior.  I have particular expertise in working with individuals with anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), insomnia, depression, and schizophrenia.

In addition to providing clinical services, I also supervise clinical psychology doctoral students as an Adjunct Clinical Supervisor at Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology at Yeshiva University.

I received my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) from Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology at Yeshiva University.  I completed my APA-accredited predoctoral internship at Manhattan Psychiatric Center, a state psychiatric hospital, and I completed my postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania where I trained under Dr. Aaron T. Beck, the father of CBT, with a focus on Recovery-Oriented Cognitive Therapy.  Throughout my career I have worked in several different settings including community mental health clinics, hospital-based outpatient programs, private practices, and acute hospitals.

In my work I strive to be empathic, genuine, curious, and perseverant.  I look forward to getting to know you and partnering with you in making positive changes that have a lasting impact on your life.
