I received my doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Yeshiva University – Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology of Albert Einstein College of Medicine (APA Accredited). I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Middlebury College, and earned my Masters of Science in Teaching from Pace University while part of the Teach for America program.
I trained and worked in a number of different community clinics, programs, and hospitals in New York City and completed my pre-doctoral training at New York University Medical Center – Bellevue Hospital (APA Accredited). My experience includes forensic, substance abuse, outpatient/inpatient, and emergency settings. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families from diverse backgrounds addressing issues such as depression and anxiety, interpersonal and relationship difficulties, self-esteem and identity, trauma histories, and life transitions.
I conduct trainings and workshops for organizations and have taught at the masters and doctoral level to clinicians-in-training (psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors) on subjects such as traumatic stress, anxiety, assessment, and therapy. Having worked in a variety of settings across New York City, I have obtained a considerable breadth and depth of psychotherapy experiences, with specialized training in psychodynamic psychotherapy and family and couples therapy.
