I am a Mount Sinai Hospital trained, licensed clinical psychologist in NYC. 


My clinical training includes work at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center, the Long Island University Psychological Services Center, the Rebecca School, Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mt. Sinai West Hospitals. My postdoctoral fellowship at the Rosemary Furman Counseling Center at Barnard College included specializations in late adolescence, early adulthood, and trauma.


I completed my B.A. in Psychology and Art History at Georgetown University. I completed my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Long Island University, Brooklyn Campus. Prior to beginning my doctoral training, I worked at Weill Cornell Medical College’s Institute of Geriatric Psychiatry, where I worked within a team of researchers investigating the treatment of geriatric mood disorders.


I have completed post-graduate training in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders at Postpartum Support International. In addition, I have trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and I have completed the two year Clinical Affiliate Program at the National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP) Trauma Treatment Center.
