I am a clinical psychologist with an office on Manhattan's Upper West Side. I have 16+ years of experience providing psychotherapy and assessment to adolescents, adults, and couples. I work with a diverse population of patients representing a wide range of ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds, as well as sexual orientations.
Through my research and clinical work at Columbia University Medical Center, I have developed expertise in working with parents in the perinatal and postpartum periods, offering support around the many challenges that can arise during these moments of vast transition.
In addition, I have many years of experience at university and graduate school counseling centers and greatly enjoy working with adolescents and young adults struggling with anxiety, depression, academic challenges, and conflicts around identity and individuation, among other issues.
I have worked in a wide range of settings, including university counseling centers, inpatient units, research hospitals, outpatient clinics, and private practice.
I see therapy as an opportunity to better understand our experiences, to identify and evaluate our ways of coping with life stressors and difficult emotions, and to work together to find new ways to address these and move forward. I work with adolescents and adults who are seeking help with a wide range of difficulties, including depression and anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties, and significant life transitions (including entering high school or college, getting married, or becoming a parent).
