About Me

I earned a bachelor of arts in writing from Carnegie Mellon University, a master of arts in clinical psychology from Teachers College, Columbia University, and am a licensed master social worker, graduating from the Hunter College School of Social Work. During my graduate years, I interned at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center's New York Obesity Research Center, where I led group psychotherapy for clients suffering from binge eating/compulsive overeating and obesity. There I also provided individual psychotherapy and counseling to weight loss study participants. Post graduation, I completed training in the integrative treatment of eating disorders at the Center for the Study of Anorexia and Bulimia and am versed in applying psychodynamic therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy principles in treating clients with eating disorders as well as clients struggling with a wide range of other challenges. I have also worked with survivors of trauma and their families, providing psychotherapeutic counseling at Selfhelp Nazi Victim/Holocaust Survivor Services as well as providing psychotherapy to diverse clients throughout clinics in Manhattan.
