I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and the Founder and Director of Therapists of New York, a group practice in Midtown Manhattan. I specialize in working with adults, adolescents, and couples. I take an active and empathetic approach to psychotherapy by establishing mutually agreed upon therapeutic goals with my clients and providing a comfortable space to explore, discuss, and be heard.
My therapy style is rooted in psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral (CBT), and dialectical behavioral (DBT) therapies, which I utilize to best meet the needs of my clients. With these approaches, I empower my clients to identify and achieve their goals by drawing on their unique individual strengths and minimizing their fear and anxiety. Further, they are able to gain a deeper understanding of who they are and how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors impact their functioning and relationships with others.
Ultimately, my focus is on increasing my clients' self-awareness, helping them to reduce anxiety and tapping into their natural abilities to navigate obstacles. Through this process they can make deep and lasting changes in order to achieve what they want in life. Moreover, I enable my clients to develop tools to help them handle life’s difficulties and events that may come their way in the future.
I earned my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the New School for Social Research. Throughout my studies, I received numerous awards for research on synchronicity in romantic relationships and teaching courses in psychology and neuropsychology. During my training, I worked at Lenox Hill Hospital - Northwell Health, Beth Israel Medical Center, and South Beach Psychiatric Center.
