Welcome, and thank you for visiting my homepage. 

I am a licensed psychologist located in New York City's Financial District with over 15 years of clinical experience in a wide-variety of behavioral health settings.  In addition to working as a therapist, I am a former adjunct professor at Fordham University and have held positions at Columbia University Medical Center and UCLA Counseling and Psychological Services.   

My areas of expertise include the treatment of anxiety and depression, as well as worry associated with interpersonal, relationship, and career-related concerns.  I work in a collaborative and compassionate style to help further understand and address the concerns that led you to this site, likely in search of some relief from the way you are currently feeling. 

I approach therapy from an integrative standpoint.  This means we may initially utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to outline coping strategies to provide symptom relief from your current distress.   As you begin to feel better, we may also incorporate an insight-oriented approach to understand relational patterns that may be contributing to your unhappiness, and that you'd like to change.  The most important part though, is that you feel understood and supported, and that we develop a plan to meet your needs, address presenting concerns, and enhance existing strengths.

Finding the right therapist to work with is important - please feel free to contact me via phone or email with questions about our initial meeting.  I look forward to speaking with you.
