We often underestimate the effect our past experiences have on our personality development, self-image, and relationship patterns. We will bridge gaps between the past and present, and identify the patterns of behavior, coping, and interpersonal functioning that are no longer adaptive. My approach to therapy is non-judgmental, empathic, and candid with humoristic relief. I firmly believe that if therapy isn't challenging you, it isn't changing you. Our collaborative relationship is a supportive foundation to safely explore uncomfortable thoughts and feelings and promote a greater understanding of self and others.
My areas of expertise include interpersonal functioning and personality dynamics, diagnostic assessment, parental mental health, and mental health for first responders. People aren't manualized, therefore, my approach is integrative, emphasizing psychodynamic modalities with DBT/CBT techniques when appropriate.

I obtained my Ph.D. at The New School in NYC, where my training experiences included the Center for Intensive Treatment of Personality Disorders, Mount Sinai, and Nassau University Medical Center. For nearly a decade, I was a clinical & forensic psychologist for the City of New York and the U.S. Department of Justice.
