I offer empathic, insight-oriented therapy that integrates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other modalities to help patients make lasting change in their thoughts, feelings, and behavior. My areas of specialty and interest include anxiety, stress management, depression/mood disorders, women's mental health, managing life transitions, and marital/relationship difficulties.
My approach focuses on building a meaningful understanding of one's experience and patterns as well as practical strategies to shift ways of interpreting and moving through the world. I believe therapy is a collaborative partnership in which both patient and therapist are actively engaged. I also view warmth, compassion, and trust as key to a successful therapeutic relationship.
I especially enjoy working with women in their 20s and 30s as they navigate this pivotal developmental stage and wrestle with the challenges of adulthood and major life decisions. My extensive training and experience in working with children and families is particularly relevant for women who are struggling with motherhood, parenting, or family relationships. I also focus on the needs of women coping with infertility/miscarriage, pregnancy, body image concerns, work/life balance, and relationship issues.
I received a Psy.D. in Professional Child/School Psychology from New York University and trained at some of the top clinical facilities in the area, including Columbia University Medical Center/NY Presbyterian Hospital and Kings County Hospital.
My office is conveniently located in midtown Manhattan near Grand Central Station.
