Profile
“I will utilize interventions and proven techniques to address depression and anxiety through cognitive restructuring, loss or grief counseling, stress reduction counseling, and goal achievement counseling.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I initially trained in the inpatient psychiatric and neurology units at Mt. Sinai Hospital. After six years there, I was able to receive my R status and become a therapist. Throughout my training and my work-life, I have had supervision and peer support.
What should someone know about working with you?
I will complete a full psychosocial assessment and work with my client to develop a treatment plan that addresses their needs and concerns associated with the presenting problem. I will utilize interventions and proven techniques to address depression and anxiety through cognitive restructuring, loss or grief counseling, stress reduction counseling, and goal achievement counseling.

What advice would you give to someone who is hesitant to try therapy?
I would advise them on the known outcomes of therapy as well as its ability to manage the behaviors that interfere with optimal functioning. I would encourage them to try a few sessions and to do ongoing evaluations in order to see if their needs are being met. I strongly believe that psychotherapy effectively treats emotional problems and I can cite studies that support this. Psychotherapy is designed to help clients better manage challenges while giving them insight into their condition; enhanced understanding comes with the ability to better solve underlying problems.
Have you done any research-based work that you found particularly exciting? How does it inform your practice today
Many years ago, I was involved with a research fellowship that followed women pre and post-abortion. It separated the women into two categories: Those who received counseling from a mental health professional and those without professional counseling. This study demonstrated the benefits of counseling pre and post-procedure.
