About Me


Licensed Clinical Psychologist in Manhattan, NY

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in private practice in Manhattan, NY at the Center for Cognitive-Behavioral Psychotherapy. My goal is to provide the most helpful therapeutic experience that best meets your needs. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and relationship issues in adults, adolescents, and children.

My training in cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, exposure and response prevention, and mindfulness based therapy allows me to tailor treatment to your specific needs and goals. Using empirically supported techniques, I believe in creating a relationship with you that allows for developing self-awareness, more adaptive coping skills and greater insight. My warm and empathic style reflects how much I love and respect my job. I am neither silent nor overly directive and I consider your own pace and comfort my priority.

I also specialize in social skills training, mindfulness and acceptance skills, and dialectical behavior therapy techniques. I have advanced training in family systems, comprehensive parent-child work, and cognitive behavioral therapy with children and adolescents.

I have done extensive research on insight capacity and development. More specifically, investigating the relationship between client insight and therapeutic technique. My work includes research projects at Mount Sinai Medical Center and Columbia University and has published in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease as well as in the Journal of Counseling Psychology.

Practice Philosophy

My Approach to Therapy

I encourage all of my clients to maintain open communication with me. It is completely normal and understandable to have questions about therapy and even the therapist. You are sharing very personal details or your life and experiences, of course you are going to have concerns about what to expect or how the process will transform over time.

As the clinician, it is my responsibility to address any and all concerns you may have either by providing necessary information or by simply discussing concerns in greater detail. Asking questions or having concerns are a natural part of any relationship. My job is to support you in feeling comfortable expressing yourself and really hearing what your needs are. The more you educate me about your perspectives the more I can understand your experiences and provide more tailored approaches that will be helpful to you.

More Information About My Practice

Tailoring an appropriate and successful treatment depends on the needs and goals of the client which are further discussed during the initial intake. While I work within a range methodologies, I have been trained in both psychodynamic psychotherapy and cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy. Finding a healthy balance between developing self-awareness while effectively learning and utilizing more adaptive coping skills is one of many important goals in developing a successful treatment plan. My goal is to provide the most comprehensive and helpful therapeutic experience that best meets the needs of the client.
