I have received extensive training from a world-renowned expert in the treatment of OCD at the esteemed Center for Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapy. In addition to providing high quality psychological services to many individuals at the Center for Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapy, I previously established an innovative online OCD support group and was fortunate to co-found a comprehensive intensive treatment program for individuals with OCD.
My pre-doctoral internship experience concentrated on working primarily with children and adolescents facing a variety of challenges. Child-focused treatment took place in home-based and in-school environments. During this time, I delivered effective individual and family therapy and conducted comprehensive cognitive and personality evaluations.
I received my doctorate in clinical psychology from Hofstra University during which I produced research in the field of relationships, sexual behavior and sexual dysfunction. I have presented my research at national and international conferences. While the majority of my time is devoted to providing therapy, I am also currently functioning as an adjunct clinical supervisor for Yeshiva University and Rutgers University. I work within a behavioral framework which is goal-directed, skills-focused and solution-oriented. I believe in fostering self-change by allying with individuals and creating a supportive relationship in order for those I collaborate with to reach their potential. The application of skills within Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, aligned with a compassionate, trusting relationship is at the core of successful therapy outcomes.
