I have been providing consultation, training, individual and couples therapy services for more than fifteen years. I have expertise in using relatively short-term treatments to treat anxiety, depression, trauma, posttraumatic stress and addictions. I developed Let’s Talk Psychological Wellness, P.C. to encourage healthy practices that focus on increasing confidence and finding and maintaining successful intimate relationships.
I have served as a clinical psychologist and research scientist at New York area hospitals, including Columbia University Medical Center, New York State Psychiatric Institute/Columbia University, New York University School of Medicine, Beth Israel Medical Center, St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center and Martin Army Hospital (United States Army). I have volunteered at a Rape Crisis Hotline and treated survivors of Intimate Partner Violence at the Women’s Health Project, The Trauma and Addictions Program at City College of New York and at the Posttraumatic Stress Research Program at New York University Medical Center. I have worked as a Psychologist at the World Trade Center Health Program, Bellevue Hospital treating survivors of 9/11, served as a Staff Psycholgist for the United States Army treating soldiers returning from combat in Iraq and Afghanistan and assessed veterans of the Vietnam War for posttraumatic symptoms. I have also served as a staff psychologist at the Columbia University Medical Center Student Mental Health Center.
I have co-authored several articles in peer reviewed journals in the areas of trauma and addictions and was the recipient of supplemental grants from the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the National Institute on Alcohol and Alcoholism. I earned her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Adelphi University and completed my doctoral internship at Columbia University Medical Center.
