Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and I have a private practice located at 240 Central Park South. In addition to my private practice, I work on the Behavioral Health Team under the Consult Liaison Psychiatry Department at Mount Sinai Hospital. Here I work alongside a Psychiatrist and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner on general medicine units, seeing patients with chronic psychiatric diagnoses as well as those yet to be diagnosed. Due to my work in the hospital, I am well versed in the DSM-5 and have developed significant familiarity with psychotropic medications. In addition to my knowledge of conventional medicine, I am certified in both Reiki and hypnosis for those interested in integrative medicine. In regards to my education, I received my Master’s degree in Social Work from NYU and then completed a two-year post-graduate training in psychodynamic psychotherapy at the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy where I still see patients. Furthermore, I also have training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy from the Beck Institute.
