Profile
“For over 15 years, I have focused my practice on the area of substance abuse with an emphasis on harm reduction.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
After college, I began a business career but found it unfulfilling. I always had a fascination with psychology so I decided to pursue a degree in social work. For over 15 years, I have focused my practice on the area of substance abuse with an emphasis on harm reduction. Prior to working in private practice, I ran a drug treatment program at Mount Sinai West Hospital where I managed the psychological needs of both patients and employees. To round out my skills, I trained in child and adolescent treatment at the Metropolitan Institute for Training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.
What should someone know about working with you?
I consider the first 1-3 sessions a consultation period during which you and I will decide if and how we can work together toward change. Progress is something we will determine together and the definition of progress will change as the process moves forward. I work with adolescents and adults on their life struggles, including but not limited to addiction.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am very excited about the evolving landscape in mental health care. With greater use of telehealth, I can reach more people in need, offering schedules that are convenient for them. I am excited about our advanced knowledge of the mind-body connection. Neurological research shows the value of talk therapy as well as exercise, diet, and psychotropic medication (as needed) for mental health and wellbeing. I incorporate this expanded understanding into my work.
