As a psychologist, I guide individuals and families through treatment for mental health conditions with compassion and kindness. I am passionate about providing children, adolescents, and adults with individualized care using evidence-based practices and ensuring that each person’s voice is heard during treatment. I deeply value learning from others on my team and have a keen interest in new ideas.
At the Child Study Center at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone, I conduct individual and group therapy for anxiety disorders, mood disorders, tics and Tourette disorder, trichotillomania and body-focused repetitive behaviors, and school refusal using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy, and habit reversal training.
I also have expertise in working with transgender and gender nonconforming youth and adults. I follow a gender-affirmative model of care and provide gender assessments for transitional care.
In addition to clinical care, I am committed to teaching and training future mental health workers. I teach undergraduate students at New York University, as well as psychology interns, psychology externs, and psychiatry fellows at the Child Study Center. I also provide clinical supervision to predoctoral psychology interns and externs.
