I am a licensed clinical psychologist in New Jersey (#5326) and New York (#020500).

Currently, I am a Psychologist at Crossover Health, a clinic where I treat working professionals in the areas of OCD, work, performance, and health related anxieties, and depressive symptoms.

My approach incorporates the principles of Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, mindfulness (MBSR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as well as the skills and techniques used in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.

 

Education

I received my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology at Rutgers University from the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, regarded as the "gold standard" in the clinical education and training of psychologists.

 

Previous clinical experiences

I was a Senior Psychologist at Bellevue Hospital Center, where a part of my practice was working with people who have experienced trauma, loss, and significant life transitions; people who have been diagnosed with cancer and other significant medical illnesses; and people who were looking for a better way to manage their feelings of anxiety and depression. Learn more about how I think about therapy through my blog on mental wellness. I had a clinical faculty appointment at NYU School of Medicine in the Department of Psychiatry, which involved supervising predoctoral psychology interns and licensed clinical social workers.

I worked as the Director of Mental Health and a Supervising Psychologist at the Rutgers University-affiliated World Trade Center Clinical Center of Excellence, positions that emphasized the treatment of traumatic stress and the development of policies, procedures, and programs within a primary care setting.

I completed a Clinical and Community Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship at Yale University School of Medicine, where I provided social and psychological services to the formerly homeless, consulted on federally funded projects at the community and organizational levels, with stakeholders, administrators, managers, and direct care staff. This experience has deeply influenced my trauma-focused and person-centered approaches to engaging systems and working with patients and colleagues.

I also received doctoral level clinical training at these sites: Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital, Bellevue Hospital Center, NYU/Bellevue Program for Survivors of Torture, ARC of Monmouth (Tinton Falls, NJ), Youth Anxiety and Depression Clinic, Counseling and Psychological Services (Rutgers University), and the New Jersey Training School for Boys (Sexual Assault Clinic).
