I am a psychotherapist specializing in individual, couple and family therapy, maintaining a private practice with offices in Huntington, NY and Manhattan, NY. I am faculty member, teaching at Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy in Manhattan, and at Hofstra University.
With over twenty years experience in healthcare, I am graduate of Hofstra University specializing in marriage and family therapy, graduate of Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy focusing on Complex Trauma Treatment, Yale University specializing in public health, and Iasi School of Medicine, with a degree in general medicine. I am currently working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are trauma specific psychotherapy including EMDR, IFS, AEDP, family and couple therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and mindfulness based therapeutic interventions.
My research and clinical work has been presented at national and international conferences, on topics including genetics of depression and bipolar disorder, geriatric psychiatry, family therapy, dialectical behavioral psychotherapy, mindfulness and complex trauma treatment. I have numerous publications in peer reviewed medical psychiatric journals.
As faculty at Hofstra University and at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, I supervise clinical work of graduate and postgraduate trainees, and have developed courses on the use of mindfulness in complex trauma, vicarious trauma issues, as well as on complex trauma treatment in families and couples.
I am an interactive and empathic therapist. My therapeutic approach is collaborative, providing support and practical feedback, and helping clients effectively address personal life challenges or psychopathology needs. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each person, couple or family. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual, couple, and family to help build on strengths and attain the growth each person is committed to accomplishing.
