About Me

I worked as a behavior specialist and clinician for six years, where I learned about services and treatment programs available in New York City. I was also clinical coordinator of the social learning program and a clinician at NYU Child Study Center where I worked for a decade. As a member of the faculty in the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at NYU Langone Medical Center, I participated in undergraduate and graduate clinical education. I have been licensed as a mental health counselor in New York State for over fifteen years.

While living in Ithaca, I served as the clinical director for the first mobile crisis team serving the dually diagnosed. In the Hudson VaIley, I was the regional director of a behavioral health department for an agency serving families in outpatient clinics. Since then, I've also consulted for high schools, universities and agencies in Massachusetts and New York.

I continue to provide consultation for schools and agencies, and I’m excited to now expand my practice to offer individual therapy to clients and their family members in Long Island.

Approach

If you are looking for effective treatment, I use evidence-based approaches that are known to work. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) targets helping people change thinking patterns and behaviors. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) focuses on supporting people as they explore their values and life directions; as well as incorporating mindfulness to make changes. At times, issues from your past which have shaped how you navigate the world need to be explored as well. I often use humor and focusing on strengths during therapy. I work individually with pre-teens (12 and up) to adults.
