In the past seven years I have had the opportunity to work with people struggling with a range of thoughts, feelings, and conditions that caused varying degrees of impairment in their day to day life. I have worked in a psychiatric hospital, in a research center, in group practices, and in private practices.  Across all these experiences I became passionate about working with adults and children who have developed negative thoughts, feelings, or perceptions of themselves or their abilities that prevent them from living the life they dream of.  In 2017 this passion led me to launch my own private practice.

Outside of the office I like to keep busy.  I started teaching in 2010 and am currently an adjunct professor in psychology at Hunter College.  I am also passionate about neuroscience and learning as much as I can about the human brain.
