I am a psychologist in New York and provide individual psychotherapy and group therapy to adolescents and adults. I earned my bachelor's degree in psychology and economics at University of Pennsylvania, my master's degree at Columbia University, and my doctorate at Fordham University. My pre-doctoral internship was at the Brooklyn VA Medical Center and my post-doctoral fellowship was at Xavier High School in Manhattan. I have been practicing for over 11 years in various settings (NYC hospitals, universities, and Veteran clinics) and have the privilege of working with clients of varying backgrounds and identities (racial/ethnic, socioeconomic, sexual orientation, gender, religious/spiritual, and many more). Additionally, I am an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Officer within the American Psychological Association and recognize the importance of viewing each person as a holistic individual. Due to my varied clinical training and research interests, my approach is integrative as I draw from interpersonal, psychodynamic, emotion-focused and cognitive-behavioral frameworks. Additionally, my research expertise focuses on the integration of spiritual, existential, and religious beliefs into psychotherapy, and my previous career experience in corporate settings helps me understand work-related stressors. Overall, I am guided by the therapeutic relationship and the importance of having an authentic relationship that is centered around empathy.
