About Me.

A New York City Private Therapy Practice

I am a New York State licensed clinical social worker. I have been working with individuals, couples and families for over a decade in different settings ranging from non-profit organizations to specialized hospital units. My experience includes individual psychotherapy, family therapy, couples counseling and group work. I have expertise and specialize in the treatment of eating disorders. In my New York City private therapy practice, I offer short-term goal directed psychotherapy as well as longer-term psychotherapy. I also provide supervision and consultation to clinicians in the field.
I received my Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts with honors from Washington University in St. Louis and my Master of Science in Social Work from Columbia University. I have completed the Certificate Program in Psychoanalysis at the William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis and Psychology.

Individual Psychotherapy
I see a diverse clientele seeking short-term or longer-term psychotherapy for a variety of reasons, including:
  • Self-exploration and development
  • Relationship issues
  • Life transitions
  • Disordered eating and body image disturbance
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Workplace or school difficulties
Couples Counseling and Family Therapy
Couples and families can benefit from therapy to develop a better understanding of their dynamics and patterns of relating to one another, work on communication skills, or manage crises and transitions.

Group Work
Groups can be a rich setting to learn about yourself and how you relate with others. They offer a unique opportunity to identify relational patterns and make changes in your life. Contact me to find out more about the groups I am currently facilitating.


In addition to my clinical work, I also provide individual and group supervision to clinicians working in various settings.

I served as an Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatric Social Work in the Department of Psychiatry at Columbia University. This role included supervising psychiatric residents, masters level social work students and other trainees on individual, family and group work. I have facilitated seminars and didactics on a variety of topics in the field.

I am certified through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (iaedp) as an approved supervisor for those seeking certification as an eating disorder specialist (CEDS).
