Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW
Using an integrative approach that includes psychodynamic, interpersonal, and mindfulness techniques, I have treated individuals and families in New York City for over fifteen years. Initially focused on adults and school-aged children, I worked for Kings County Hospital, several community-based mental health centers, and the public school system.
A graduate of the NYU/PANY psychodynamic psychotherapy program, the lifelong impact of our early experiences led me to seek enhanced knowledge of early child development, attachment, other parent-infant theories, and related clinical modalities. I have undergone training in Child-Parent Psychotherapy and am a graduate of Columbia University's Parent-Infant Psychotherapy program. I am a member of the World Association for Infant Mental Health (WAIMH), the New York Zero-to-Three Network (NYZTT), and the Brooklyn Children's Mental Health Committee. I am certified by Postpartum Support International in perinatal mood and anxiety disorder (PMAD) care, and welcome pregnant people, parents, and their babies into my practice.
I also provide supervision to therapists working with adults and children, have served as a consultant to New York City's child welfare agency (ACS), and am an active member of the Women's Mental Health Consortium (WMHC).
A clinician should never stop learning--so I look forward to continuing to learn through additional academic training, professional peers, and my clients.
