I am a licensed clinical psychologist providing psychotherapy to adults, families, and couples seeking help for a range of mental health and interpersonal issues. I have worked in public and private hospitals on both inpatient and outpatient units and have trained as a therapist at several university counseling centers. Most recently, I practiced in Williamsburg, Brooklyn as a member of a private group of psychologists and psychiatrists.
I have worked with individuals seeking help for mood instability, depression, anxiety/panic, relationship problems, life adjustments, a variety of problematic behavioral patterns (e.g., unhealthy eating, self-harm, impulsive anger, poor relationship choices, substance abuse), and many other issues. As well, I have helped couples and families in crisis and those who simply desire more closeness or better communication.

I have a special interest in working with individuals who are bothered by long-standing interpersonal and personality difficulties. Within this topic, I am especially interested in creating satisfying and meaningful therapy experiences for people who may struggle in therapy. My doctoral research and related publications have focused on exploring what psychotherapy clients like and dislike most about their relationships with their therapists.
