Clinical Psychologist in New York


About My Clients

I have worked extensively with LQBTQIA+ clients and provide gender-affirming care for those who seek counseling and letters of support for gender-confirming surgeries. I have extensive experience working with those struggling with addiction with a strong focus on problem gambling and gambling disorder.

My Background and Approach

My approach to general therapy is strengths-based and heavily rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Enhancement. I am experienced in trauma-related treatments such as Exposure Therapy and Cognitive Processing Therapy as well as dual-diagnosis approaches to treating substance use disorders and trauma at the same time.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I see therapy is a collaborative relationship built on respect and trust, and my primary goal is to help you make the changes you’d like to see in your life. To that end, I encourage you to take advantage of a free 15-minute phone consultation so we can both explore how we’ll work together and how I can help make you realize the changes you’d like to see.
