About Me

I believe that everyone has the potential to create a meaningful life, and I am passionate about helping my clients achieve their goals. My approach to therapy is driven by scientific evidence and is tailored to the needs of the individual.

I completed my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Hofstra University and I worked in hospitals and Veterans Affairs (VA) Healthcare systems before moving to teaching and private practice. I began my clinical training in the Northwell Healthcare System at the OCD and Bipolar Disorder specialty clinics. From there, I worked with veterans in both outpatient and residential PTSD and substance use treatment programs. I was fortunate to be certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD during my time in the VA. I have also worked on inpatient psychiatry units at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital and Jamaica Hospital in Queens, New York.

After leaving Jamaica Hospital in 2016, I had the pleasure of working in a private practice on Long Island where I found my passion for this work. I transitioned to the American Institute for Cognitive Therapy in 2017 and began my own practice in 2023.

I am a past adjunct professor at State University of New York College at Old Westbury and I have published and presented at national and international conference on anxiety, psychosis, and aggression.
