Training and Expertise

EDUCATION AND TRAINING

I received B.S. from Tufts University, my masters in counseling from Columbia University and attended the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy for postgraduate training in psychodynamic psychotherapy.

Additionally, I have completed comprehensive Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) training through Behavior Tech and incorporate mindfulness practices and DBT skills training into my work.

In addition to seeing patients in private practice, I am a consulting Adult Therapist at Freedom Institute, a New York OASAS licensed outpatient recovery center located in Manhattan, where I facilitate process and DBT groups, as well as do individual DBT.
