I am a licensed clinical psychologist with offices in NYC and Montclair, NJ. I work with adults college age and up. Trained in relational psychodynamic psychotherapy, I value the exploratory work that allows clients to understand themselves and build lives that feel authentic. Over the years I have built a specialty in treating PTSD and complex trauma. As such, I am certified in EMDR and also utilize other interventions so helpful in treating trauma/PTSD such as Internal Family Systems as well as somatic and mindfulness interventions.
In treatment planning I work collaboratively with each client to make sure that I am meeting their treatment needs. I am direct and transparent in my approach while also maintaining the boundaries that are so important for people to be able to feel safe and trust the process of therapy.
Having worked at the counseling center at Montclair State University for 14 years, I am comfortable with and like working with college students. I incorporate a framework that considers the various and intersecting identities that make up who we are and work from a feminist and social justice perspective.
