I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and I have a private practice located at 240 Central Park South. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic I am currently seeing patients virtually. In addition to my private practice, I work within the Department of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai Hospital. Due to my work in the hospital, I am well versed in diagnosing mental disorders and have developed significant familiarity with psychotropic medications. Most importantly I have become skilled in working with a complex and varied patient population. In an effort to serve those who could benefit from alternative treatments outside of what is available through conventional medicine, I often utilize integrative and creative approaches with patients--including mindfulness techniques, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Reiki, all of which I have incorporated into my background in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
In regard to my education, I received my master’s degree in Social Work from NYU and then completed a two-year post-graduate training in psychodynamic psychotherapy at the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy.
I believe that lasting healing involves psychotherapy and at times other interventions such as medication or meditative and spiritual practices in those who have interests in these areas. I have and continue to keeping current with both Western and Eastern philosophies so that I can best meet the needs of my patients. I see my role in a treatment relationship as a guide to help people heal themselves.
