I am a clinical psychologist specializing in working with adults with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), other forms of anxiety, and insomnia. 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 provide Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), treatments that to reduce symptoms and improve wellbeing by cultivating flexibility in our thinking and behavior.
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.
