My approach to treatment is an interpersonal--relational psychotherapeutic approach and draws from my psychodynamic training, as well as the latest scientific research and evidence-based interventions to achieve goals decided upon in the treatment. I believe to manage the presenting problem, you must feel safe, not judged, and related to in a professional and personable manner. My approach is collaborative, and I value the connection and relationship that we co-create to help you make positive shifts in your life. I have great respect for the healing power of therapy and believe firmly in the process. I only do face to face teletherapy, opposed to in-office treatment.

I draw upon 20 years of experience gained working in private practice, clinics, and long-term care facilities doing one to one psychotherapy, as well as couple and group therapy. I have worked with individuals of all ages, backgrounds, sexual preferences, and sexual identifications. I am clear that emotional issues do not discriminate and are not about the lack of willpower or intelligence. I am Clinical Psychologist in private practice in the city/state of New York. I do psychotherapy on-line to reach people who would not ordinarily be able to dedicate the time to treatment or who are unable to commute. Much of my focus is building my client's strengths while decreasing symptoms such as anxiety, depression and interpersonal challenges. I have spent much time supporting individuals who are facing difficult life transitions such as marriage, divorce, a new baby, sexual orientation/transitioning, college stressors, aging family members, geriatrics facing long-term care, grief, infidelity, abuse, chronic illness, and sports injuries just to name a few. I have been in the field for over 20 years, working clinically and teaching in the University setting. I have a masters degree in Developmental psychology from Columbia University and a master's degree and a Ph.D. in Clinical psychology from the Derner Institute.
