For over 15 years I have been a practicing Clinical Psychologist. I offer individual psychotherapy to adults and adolescents, and couples therapy as well. My expertise is in a Psychodynamic approach, and I integrate aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness as well.
My areas of focus include: anxiety, depression and mood disorders, relationships, trauma/PTSD, creativity, career/work transitions, living with illness, LGBTQ affirmative therapy, grief and loss
I also offer clinical supervision and consultation to practicing mental health professionals, including pre-licensed clinicians.
I am affiliated with Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center, where I previously worked full time and continue to be a clinical supervisor of psychologists in training. I am also an Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
I have worked for the past 12 years with the human rights organization HealthRight International providing pro bono forensic evaluations to document evidence of torture and other human rights abuses for immigrants fleeing persecution and seeking political asylum in the US.
