“I often use assessments to guide my clinical work as quantitative and qualitative instruments offer clients a variety of options associated with understanding and treating their individual concerns.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My history of research, teaching, and clinical work allows me to maintain consulting relationships with individuals, couples, and families in clinical treatment as well as with professionals in business and government. Some of the issues I address include teaching and learning, crisis management, testing, and psychology, areas that are all associated with mental health and adult development.
What should someone know about working with you?
I often use assessments to guide my clinical work as quantitative and qualitative instruments offer clients a variety of options associated with understanding and treating their individual concerns. Assessments also aid in selecting the current science and best clinical practices regarding an individual's, couple's, or family's needs. I specialize in working in the areas of career, school, family conflict, life patterns, anxiety, depression, medical intervention, mental illness, pharmaceutical management, and grief and loss.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am currently a PhD candidate and I expect to complete my dissertation in 2021. I also currently have three master’s degrees and have recently been teaching at New York University’s School of Medicine.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
I employ a multidisciplinary approach rather than a "one-size-fits-all" approach to treatment. My analysis reviews medical, social, psychological, educational, and alternative medicine interventions as short and long-term possibilities associated with treatment.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I’m excited by the way applied science and good therapeutic practices can foster faster, deeper, and longer senses of internal peace.
Have you done any research-based work that you found particularly exciting? How does it inform your practice today?
I have always been a researcher. I write, speak, and work clinically with issues concerning adolescent and adult mental health.
