I am a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in evidence-based cognitive behavior therapy for anxiety and related disorders. I work with children, adolescents, and adults who experience anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and related issues. My goal is to help clients and their families get back on track after anxiety has interfered with their lives. I approach clients with a collaborative, warm, energetic, and genuine style. I have a deep commitment to helping people face their fears and return to the activities and relationships they value.
Throughout my training and career I have focused on working with individuals with anxiety, OCD, and related disorders. I graduated from Temple University with my PhD in clinical psychology in 2009, after having moved to New York in 2008 for my clinical internship at Long Island Jewish Hospital. I stayed in the area for my two-year postdoctoral fellowship at New York Presbyterian Hospital--Westchester Division. Upon completing my fellowship in 2011, I joined the Weill Cornell Medical College faculty as an Assistant Professor of Psychology. I became the Assistant Director of Education for Psychology in 2014. During my 8 years as a faculty member at Weill Cornell, I split my time between clinical work, supervising psychologists-in-training, and being the administrator for the education program. In 2019, I transitioned from Weill Cornell Medicine’s full-time faculty to its voluntary faculty, where I continue to be actively involved in training psychologists.
In 2019, I opened Hudson River Therapy Psychological Services, a Midtown Manhattan specialty private practice focused on treating individuals with anxiety and related disorders.
