Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW, Ph.D.
I am a New York State licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist. I was born and raised in Ireland and received my BA in Psychology from University College Dublin. After coming to the US, I continued my studies and received both my Masters and Ph.D. from Columbia University School of Social Work. I have also received training in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) at the Beck Institute.
In my clinical practice, I work with individuals with a range of emotional, behavioral and adjustment problems such as anxiety, depression, stress and conflict. My approach to therapy is interactive, conversational and collaborative. I believe that warmth, respect and a sense of humor all contribute to a strong therapeutic relationship.
In addition to my private practice, I am currently the Director of Standards, Training and Practice at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
