Psychotherapist in New York City



about ME

I am a licensed psychotherapist practicing in New York City. I received my B.A. from McGill University, and my MSW from the Columbia University School of Social Work. I am currently employed full-time at the Callen-Lorde Community Health Center in Chelsea, which serves the LGBTQIA community and individuals living with HIV. I am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and am the leader of Callen-Lorde’s DBT team. Prior to working at Callen-Lorde, I worked in outpatient psychiatry at Mt. Sinai St. Luke's Hospital. I also maintain a private practice in Manhattan, with an office near Herald Square.

I recently completed a two-year postgraduate training program in contemplative psychotherapy at the Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science, synthesizing traditional Buddhist psychology and meditation practices with contemporary neuroscience and Western psychotherapy.

Clinical Orientation

Some clients come to therapy to address a specific issue; others come for a broader exploration.

I am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), which teaches individuals to reduce unwanted behaviors, replace them with more skillful behaviors, and create a life worth living.

In private practice, my clinical orientation draws from DBT and several other modalities, and will be tailored to suit your needs. My aim is to provide a warm, compassionate, and interactive setting where you can feel comfortable and validated. Furthermore, I believe that every person possesses a basic goodness and inner wisdom, and together we will work to clear away ineffective or unwanted behaviors so that you can access those elements more effectively. I strive to balance insight about the past with constructive, practical tools that can be used immediately in everyday life.
