My Approach to Helping
**I AM CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** I have the most expertise and passion in helping clients with: (1) Eating disorders; (2) Behavioral weight loss; (3) Couples Therapy (including infidelity recovery); (4) Behavioral health (insomnia, sleep disorders, chronic pain, coping with illness, alcohol abuse) (5) Anxiety and stress (general, social anxiety, phobias, panic disorder); (6) Depression; and (7) Trauma and PTSD. I follow a collaborative and personalized treatment approach by carefully tailoring evidence-based psychotherapy (EBPs), which are treatments that are based directly on scientific evidence from several large-scale clinical trials.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist holding a part-time private practice and an Assistant Professor Position at the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology at Yeshiva University, where I am the Director of the Mindfulness, Eating Disorders, and Acceptance Lab and conduct treatment development research.
I offer an initial free phone consultation (please call me or email me to schedule). In addition to regular business hours, I also offer a limited number of evening and weekend appointments. To learn more or book a session online, please see my website: www.salapsychology.com
