I am a clinical psychologist with offices in Park Slope, Brooklyn and midtown Manhattan, specializing in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for depression and anxiety disorders in adults. I work collaboratively to help clients clarify their own therapeutic and life goals, and we quickly get to work pursuing them.
My clients and I are deeply invested in reducing their emotional distress and improving their quality of life. I use empirically supported treatments, including CBT, Exposure with Response Prevention (ERP), and mindfulness-based therapies for a range of problems, including depression, generalized anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic, social anxiety, phobias, insomnia, and trichotillomania. Many also come to me with relationship and other life issues. Clients have noted that my empathetic style, therapeutic flexibility, and firm belief that they can better their lives has helped them to make changes that have otherwise seemed too difficult.
I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, and my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from St. John's University. I pursued additional training in CBT as a post-doctoral fellow at the Westchester Center for Cognitive Therapy, and currently serve as an Adjunct Clinical Supervisor in CBT for doctoral students at the Ferkauf Graduate School of Yeshiva University.
