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.
