    I am a clinical psychologist , was trained/worked both as a clinician and as a researcher at Teachers College, Columbia Univesrsity Medical Center, NY State Psychiatric Institute, and St. Lukes-Rosevelt Hospital.  I am a current supervisor at CUNY's graduate center's wellness center, and a former supervisor/adjunct professor at Columbia University, Teachers College Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program.  I have extensive experience providing psychotherapy in the Grand Central area. I specialize in treating worry & anxiety (including panic, social), depression, low self worth, and attachment/relationship difficulties. I also specialize in perinatal depression/anxiety, and in adjustment to parenting. I provide psychotherapy to those who are dissatisfied with their interpersonal relationships or with their career and who aspire to lead a more meaningful life. Psychotherapy leads to greater self-knowledge, to making healthier life choices, to improving relationships and to greater self acceptance and confidence. Ineffective coping are replaced by healthier ones.

    I believe successful treatments are based on a warm, supportive and non-judgmental therapeutic environment, in which the client can comfortably explore issues and experience a good connection with the therapist. I tailor my approach to each individual's needs and goals, and work collaboratively with each client.

    I am trained in several different treatment modalities including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), psychodynamic psychotherapy, CBT (including mindfulness based), and Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT). I am fluent in English and Hebrew and I also work with Orthodox patients.

I published both in scientific journals and at the HuffPost, and contributed to published pieces about mental health at BuzzFeed, Mic, Self Magazine, and the Economist. I strive to increase awareness to mental health issues, while providing high quality personalized care.
