I received a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from New York University, a Master's in Counseling Psychology and a Master's in Philosophy from Northwestern University, and a Bachelor's in Philosophy from Wesleyan University. I am licensed to practice clinical psychology in New York and New Jersey. I also completed the Certificate Program in Psychoanalysis at the William Alanson White Insitute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis, and Psychology.
I have received extensive training in individual, couples, and group psychotherapy. I have worked both in inpatient and outpatient settings. My areas of expertise include low self-esteem, body image and eating problems, career issues, relationship difficulties, cultural adjustment, depression, anxiety, loss, and substance abuse. I work well with a diverse group of clients, including those of different ages, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, religions, and social classes.
I teach a range of graduate-level courses, including Individual Counseling, Group Dynamics, and Marriage and Family Psychotherapy in the Department of Applied Psychology at New York University.
I also serve as an assistant editor for the Journal of Contemporary Psychoanalysis.
