I am a licensed psychologist who specializes in cognitive behavioral therapy. My experience includes providing evidence-based treatments to address complex psychological and psychosocial issues, such as anxiety, depression and ADHD. As part of a team at the New York University Child Study Center, I participated in the development of mental health programs in schools and provided consultation to school staff in various school systems. Additionally, I have given talks in and around New York and Connecticut on topics such as anxiety, bullying, resiliency and mindfulness-based approaches to healing.
From 1997-2004, I was a professional soccer player, playing for the United States National team. A career ending injury was the stepping stone to my academic career in psychology. For the past 10 years, I have been an actively engaged student and now teacher, in the area of mental health. My professional affiliations include the American Psychological Association, Anxiety and Depression Association of America, and the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapists. I work tirelessly to advocate for my client's interests and consistently give 110% to my practice, as I did in my former career. I firmly believe that therapy works best when there is a certain "teamwork" and chemistry, thus I emphasize the client-therapist relationship before anything else.
