About Me

Welcome! I am a licensed clinical psychologist, providing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for clients of all ages. Common issues that I treat include anxiety, depression, ADHD (in both children and adults), panic attacks, OCD, anger, trauma, and life adjustment issues.  In addition to working broadly, I also specialize in working with new mothers, helping such clients overcome postpartum anxiety and depression. Along with extensive experience in working with such clients, as a mother myself, I bring an extra layer of empathy and understanding to the treatment as well.


I have worked in the mental health field for the past 10 years, and received my doctorate from Yeshiva University in New York. I completed my post-doctoral fellowship at Kaiser Permanente in Fremont, California in the Bay Area.

My vision as a therapist is to help individuals to achieve their goals as soon as possible, and to make long-term, sustainable changes. To accomplish this, I aim to provide a space in which clients can feel comfortable expressing thoughts and feelings, gain insights into their experiences, and talk about things that they might not be able to discuss with others. At the same time, I also aim to equip clients with the coping skills and tools that they need in order to make their desired changes. I help individuals see that they are not alone in what they are going through, and instill hope in your ability to meet your goals.This process is done in an environment that is free of judgment, with an emphasis on respect and validation of the individual’s experience and perspective.

I practice predominantly from a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) perspective, but work collaboratively with each client to tailor the treatment based on each individual’s needs and preferences. I look forward to serving my clients to the best of my ability.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located?

Ample free street parking is available, as are multiple paid lots.

How long does each therapy session take, and how often are they held?

This is something that we will discuss together to determine the best match for your needs. That being said, typical sessions last 40 minutes and are held once per week. As you progress towards your goals, this will likely be reduced.

What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?

CBT is a method of psychotherapy treatment. It is my method of choice because it has been thoroughly researched in a multitude of scientific experiments and shown to be effective for a broad range of psychological issues (including anxiety disorders, depression, OCD, trauma, and much more). It is considered the "gold standard" of treatments in our field. It is also very user-friendly, intuitive, and straightforward. CBT provides the flexibility to tackle specific goals in a concrete way, while also exploring more deep-rooted issues. It can be tailored to each client's individual needs and situation.


We will talk more about this together, but the basic premise of CBT is that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are all connected. Thus, if we want to modify our feelings, we can do this by changing our thoughts and behaviors.   

Do you take insurance?

I accept insurance for NY-based clients only at this time:

-United Healthcare

-Oxford

The cost of a 40-minute session is $200. Many clients are able to be reimbursed by their insurance companies for a portion of the cost via out-of-network benefits. Please speak with your insurance provider in order to confirm your benefits and policies for out-of-network providers.
