I am a clinical psychologist specializing in individual work with adults. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Southern California. I then earned my Psy.D in clinical psychology from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Yeshiva University after completing my pre-doctoral internship training at the Brooklyn VA. Throughout my training I have worked individually with diverse groups of adults within hospital, college counseling, and community mental health settings seeking help for a wide variety of concerns.
My approach places a particular emphasis on how we are shaped by experience and I pay careful and considerate attention to your experience of early life, relationship dynamics, trauma, culture, and systems of power. I feel that the establishment and maintenance of a strong therapy relationship is truly what makes therapy work. While my relationship with each of my patients is unique, I always bring warmth, empathy, curiosity, and a sense of humor to the work I do. Above all, I strive to create a space in which patients feel safe, heard, respected, and ultimately empowered. I take a flexible approach to meet the unique and individualized experiences and needs of each of my patients while also embracing our shared humanity and fundamental needs for connectedness and fulfillment in our lives.
