My Approach to Helping
I’m a licensed clinical psychologist in New York City. I’m also a Clinical Assistant Professor of Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College, and a supervising psychologist at The Motherhood Center of New York. I work with adults in individual psychotherapy, and have two primary areas of expertise: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Women’s Mental Health. In addition, I also work with adults to overcome fear and anxiety, improve mood, navigate life transitions, and improve their social relationships.
My approach is warm, personalized, and evidence-based. I work with my patients to set personalized, achievable goals, find better ways to cope and manage stressful situations, and build on individual strengths. We will develop our treatment plan as a team and move at a pace that feels right for you. I have expertise in both Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), two short-term, solution-focused approaches shown to be highly effective in the research literature. I also have advanced training in Schema Therapy. I frequently combine these approaches with other evidence-based techniques to provide treatment that is individually-tailored to each patient’s needs. These may include emotion-focused therapy, mindfulness techniques, exposure therapy, assertiveness training, or other approaches. If you’re ready to gain a new perspective and make sustainable changes, let’s talk about how we can work together to achieve your goals.
