I am a clinical psychologist with a particular interest in women's mental health. Women are uniquely vulnerable to distinct biological, emotional, and psychosocial stressors such as pregnancy, infertility, menopause, and increasingly demanding work-family responsibilities. I utilize a cognitive behavioral (CBT) approach, which is a proven and effective treatment for anxiety, depression, panic, and obsessive-compulsive disorder - mental health problems which predominantly affect women. My approach is collaborative, present-focused, and tailored to the goals you would like to meet. I work with you to reduce acute distress, while also supporting you to develop greater insight and self-awareness.
The relationship between therapist and client is of utmost importance in creating the safe, supportive environment necessary to facilitate exploration, emotional growth, and behavior change. I listen to your concerns without judgment and teach you skills to utilize toward meeting your goals, coping with stress, and experiencing improved mood.
I am a New York state licensed psychologist, and have also worked as a licensed psychologist in London, England. I received my undergraduate degree from Stanford University, studied clinical psychology at New York University, and received my doctorate degree from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Yeshiva University.
