I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist (Ph.D.) whose passion for promoting women’s mental health was born during my undergraduate years at Barnard College.
As an undergraduate, I attended “Take Back the Night” marches and volunteered for Barnard’s crisis hotline. Through these experiences I saw firsthand the powerful transformation that could occur when previously silenced women felt safe enough to share their stories and have their private pain borne witness to, some for the very first time.
These were early formative experiences that convinced me to find ways to help women feel supported, listened to without judgment, and taken seriously.
Since then, I have devoted my career to providing treatment tailored to women’s unique mental health needs.
In my private practice, based in Westchester, NY, I address family and romantic relationships, fertility and pregnancy related issues, the transition to motherhood, sexual trauma, and body image issues. This focus has been enriching for me, and I always gain a new appreciation for the unique experiences of every woman I meet through my practice.
In addition to treating women in my private practice, I have also had the privilege of serving as an Adjunct Professor of Psychology at Iona College in New Rochelle.

B.A., Psychology, Barnard College of Columbia University
Ph.D., Clinical Psychology, City University of New York
