I am a clinical psychologist who provides therapy and assessment services to children, adolescents, and adults. I earned my undergraduate degree in political science and philosophy from the University of Maryland. After college, I decided to pursue a career as a psychologist and completed post-baccalaureate psychology coursework at Columbia University. I gained a breadth of research experience, including as a research coordinator on multiple NIMH-grant funded studies in the Substance Use Research Center at the New York State Psychiatric Institute/Columbia University Department of Psychiatry. From there I attended Fairleigh Dickinson University, where I earned my Ph.D. in clinical psychology. I completed my pre-doctoral internship training with Mt. Sinai Services at Elmhurst Hospital Center. Throughout my clinical training, I have gained experience providing therapy and conducting assessments with patients suffering from problems spanning the diagnostic spectrum, ranging from mild adjustment difficulties to severe and persistent psychotic disorders, and have worked in community mental health and hospital outpatient, inpatient, and emergency room settings. Currently, I am a psychologist in the Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program (CPEP) at Elmhurst Hospital Center and a member of the psychology faculty for the pre-doctoral clinical internship program at the hospital.
At Soffer & Associates, I conduct psychological evaluations of individuals across the lifespan through the Psychological Assessment Service. My approach to assessment is grounded in empirical research and tailored to the individual needs of each patient. I believe assessment can help you to understand you or your child more deeply, aid in treatment planning, and determine what specific psychological difficulties may be contributing to challenges you or your child are experiencing in everyday life. I have expertise in cognitive, psychoeducational, psychodiagnostic, and personality assessment.
