About Me 

I help mothers and fathers tap into their strengths in order to overcome reproductive challenges including insomnia, miscarriage & loss, postpartum anxiety and depression.

I completed my training at

  • Mount Sinai Medical School 
  • New York University
  • William Alanson White Institute
  • Seleni Institute
  • National Institute of Mental Health

In addition to my private practice, I serve as clinical faculty at NYU and Baruch College as well as a consulting psychologist for fatherhood and co-parenting programming at the Seleni Institute.

 My clinical expertise has been featured in Psychology Today, Huffington Post, Vice,, and the Daily Meal.  I specialize in solution-oriented, strength-focused treatment and support. This includes providing an inclusive multicultural lens so clients of all backgrounds are validated and respected. Empathy is the foundation of my work. In addition to my specialization I also welcome clients facing a range of difficulties with sleep, insomnia, relationship issues, career development/work-life balance challenges, depression, anxiety, and ADD/ADHD. 

How I Work

I'm a Strength Focused Psychologist, who listens actively, collaborates deeply, and cultivates strengths to help clients live, work, and love to their best potentials.  I always explore your concerns, work to understand your personal history, and nurture your strengths while developing strategies and possible solutions to help you grow, develop, and change.  

I am a strengths-based psychologist with graduate training that is largely based in the psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, and interpersonal therapies.  I know that good therapy and change can only happen when a strong collaborative relationship is built through ongoing conversations of what we are doing and what we hope to achieve in our work together.
