I am a licensed clinical psychologist practicing in midtown Manhattan.
My work focuses on helping my patients come to know themselves more deeply in order to reduce emotional distress, improve relationships, and gain insight into their current struggles.
My approach is open, interactive, and empathic.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is a powerful agent of change and that healing begins only in a place that is truly safe for self-exploration. With nonjudgmental curiosity, I work to get to know my patients as fully as possible in order to understand the complex factors that contribute to each patient’s ongoing struggles. I view treatment as a collaborative process that is always tailored to meet the individual’s needs.
I have experience working with individuals across the lifespan and in different settings. I received a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from City University of New York, and an M.Ed from Harvard Graduate School of Education. I completed my predoctoral internship at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC), New York Presbyterian Hospital and postdoctoral fellowship at the William Alanson White Institute for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy. I have also worked in various other community clinics, college counseling centers and hospitals.
In addition to my private practice, I am the supervising psychologist for the School Based Mental Health Collaboration (SBMHC), Teachers College, Columbia.
