License No. and State:
My specialties include the treatment of depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, phobias, and interpersonal/relationship issues. I also work with clients who have experienced a wide range of traumatic events, including those grappling with loss and grief. Specific childhood disorders that I treat are selective mutism, social anxiety, ADHD, and behavioral problems.
With regard to my educational background, I have obtained a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Long Island University (LIU-Post)–where I also worked as an adjunct professor teaching psychology. At LIU, I received specialized training in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and psychodynamic therapy. I’m also certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), which is an evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents who have been impacted by trauma.
My breadth of clinical experience is reflected in the diverse settings in which I have worked. Most recently, I worked as a clinical psychologist at Northwell Health Physicians Partners CBT practice providing short-term, evidence-based treatment to adults and adolescents. During my previous training at the Child Mind Institute in New York City, I worked extensively with children and adolescents diagnosed with anxiety and mood disorders. I worked directly with the clients’ families and the school system. At the Child Mind Institute, I successfully treated a number of children who had severe selective mutism, social anxiety, depression, and disruptive behavioral problems. My other clinical experience at MercyFirst, a residential treatment, afforded me the opportunity to work with adolescents who struggled with emotional and behavioral problems. At MercyFirst, I provided individual and group therapy and conducted comprehensive psychological evaluations of my clients. My skills in connecting with adolescent clients who were often resistant to receiving help from other providers often led to successful clinical outcomes. I completed my post-doctoral fellowship at the Community Health Center in Stamford, Connecticut, providing individual and group therapy mainly to adult clients who presented with a range of emotional problems, including anxiety, depression, trauma, and addiction issues. I have also worked in other outpatient and inpatient settings with clients from across the lifespan.
