My Approach to Helping
Do you want life to be better? I was trained at Yale and Columbia University. Currently, I am a clinical associate professor at Stanford University School of Medicine's Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (affiliate), as well as a professor at the California School of Professional Psychology. I'm licensed as a clinical psychologist in New York and California. While in New York, I served as an assistant professor at Columbia University. I bring more than 15 years of experience to my work as a psychologist. I focus on your strengths, not your failings, and work with you to achieve a happier and more meaningful life that draws upon your unique abilities.
