I am a licensed psychologist in New York City. I received a Doctorate of Psychology (Psy.D.) in 2011 from St. John’s University, a Master of Arts (MA) degree in forensic psychology in 2005 from John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in 2003 from Union College. My educational training focused on the manifestations of behavioral dysregulation, which culminated in a doctoral dissertation on adolescent psychopathy, under the guidance of Raymond DiGiuseppe, PhD.
Since 2005, Koved Care has been dedicated to helping clients and their families find a path forward to recovery from mental illness.
Koved Care partners with clients, their families and treating clinicians to provide comprehensive, strategic, and individualized support. Over the course of our assessment and on-going work, we develop step by step plans that address clients’ biological, psychological and social needs in a logical progression. By coordinating care, liaising with clients’ families, and working with clients in-vivo, Koved Care helps manage the day-to-day challenges involved in treating complex clients.
As Director of Services, I frame and define Koved Care’s approach, designs its systems and supervises implementation. Koved Care supports clients through a behavioral, strengths-based, compassion-focused approach.
In my private practice, I offer my clients a collaborative approach, utilizing evidence-based treatments, including cognitive behavioral therapy, behavior therapy, and compassion focused therapy. I am particularly interested in the management of medical, behavioral, and learning challenges. I’ve utilized these skills with a variety of populations, including individuals with special needs, learning and behavioral challenges, brain injuries, and chronic medical conditions. I enjoy collaborating with other providers to ensure a cohesive approach to my clients’ treatment. I use warmth, humor, and sincerity to create a comfortable and safe environment for my clients.
