I am a licensed psychologist with expertise in maternal mental health. I support patients through life transitions, anxiety & depression, grief/loss, creative blocks, and exploratory work.
I see adults aged 18+, from emerging adulthood and college students up to older adults. I specialize in women's issues, including role transitions, pelvic and birth trauma, perinatal anxiety and depression, and parenthood.
I am experienced in working with medical providers in supporting the emotional and relational aspects of medical issues including dyspareunia, vaginismus, and pelvic trauma. I provide support and healing for the relational, self-esteem, and/or traumatic aspects that often accompany these issues.
I create a warm space and invite patients to bring their genuine selves in order to build trust and openness which foster healing and positive change. I work from an integrative lens, combining a psychodynamic background with somatic, CBT/DBT techniques, and mindfulness-based practices. I can help patients with coping skills, supportive therapy, and deeper exploration, depending on where they are in their experience.
I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology from LIU Brooklyn, and a masters in psychology from Columbia University. I gained acute mental health training at Mount Sinai Beth Israel hospital, completed my clinical internship at NY Health + Hospitals Kings County Hospital, and my postdoctoral training was at Pratt Institute counseling center. I also trained at the Psychiatric Institute at the Columbia University Medical Center and Long Island University Brooklyn counseling center.
