About Me

My work as a clinical psychologist continually challenges me to expand my knowledge and understanding of people. I admire the diversity, perseverance, and resilience of the children, adolescents, and adults with whom I am privileged to work.

I evaluate and treat people of all ages who have anxiety, obsessive–compulsive spectrum disorders, eating disorders, tics, and many other conditions. A top priority of mine when beginning any treatment program is establishing a compassionate and supportive relationship with all of my patients and their families.

My approach is active, collaborative, and results driven. I work hard to teach my patients active problem-solving and skill building based on a cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) framework. Through this process, people develop the tools they need to overcome their anxiety, depression, and fears, so that they can return to leading healthy, satisfying, and productive lives.

At the Child Study Center, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone, I coordinate the intensive treatment program for children and adolescents with anxiety disorders and obsessive–compulsive disorder, group cognitive behavioral therapy for children and adolescents with social anxiety, and educational workshops for parents of anxious children. I am also the director of the Tics, Tourette Disorder, and Trichotillomania Program at the Child Study Center, where we evaluate and treat people with motor, vocal, and body-focused repetitive behaviors, such as skin picking.

I strive to continually enhance my practice through specialized training and education to better serve my patients’ needs. I am certified in family-based therapy for anorexia, cognitive therapy, the comprehensive model for behavioral treatment of body-focused repetitive behaviors, and the Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics. Additionally, I teach undergraduate students at NYU and predoctoral psychology interns, postdoctoral fellows, psychiatry residents, and psychiatry fellows at NYU School of Medicine. In 2013 and 2014, I received the Outstanding Faculty Award during my tenure as a clinical assistant professor at Stanford University School of Medicine, and in 2016, I was named Teacher of the Year by NYU Langone and NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue psychology trainees.
