Welcome to my practice! I am a clinical psychologist and specialize in cognitive-behavioral therapy for anxiety and related disorders (such as social anxiety, panic, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder and trichotillomania). I also treat many other conditions, such as depression, trauma, grief, substance abuse, adjustment difficulties or problems in interpersonal relationships.
While I work with adults of all ages, I specialize in working with young adults (ages 18-28) and have worked in several college counseling centers, including Princeton University, where I completed my post-doctoral residency.
Taking a holistic approach, I make sure that we focus not only on the symptoms, but on your overall wellbeing. I create a safe and warm environment, where we work as a team to help you create a meaningful life. I offer a complimentary 15 minute consultation (phone or video) to help answer any questions that you may have, and to assess whether I can address you concerns. I look forward to hearing from you.
Please note: During the pandemic, I continue to provide therapy through secure and easy-to-use video sessions.
During the initial 1-2 sessions, I will provide a detailed diagnostic evaluation to help you understand your symptoms, and will discuss a treatment plan. We will review your current functioning, mental health history, as well as social and family factors that can be contributing to your distress. In addition to a clinical interview, I may ask you to fill out diagnostic questionnaires or with your permission, gather additional information from your family members or other healthcare professionals.
Through weekly individual therapy, we can address:
In addition to in-person individual therapy, we can also meet via video sessions (through a secure, HIPAA compliant system that is easily accessible on your smart phone or computer). This may be helpful when you cannot attend a session due to illness, inclement weather, or are traveling.

I am a credentialed provider for students (and their dependents) who have Princeton University Student Health Plan. There is no referral needed, and the number of sessions is unlimited and flexible in frequency.
Out of Network Provider

Note that you can also pay for psychotherapy using your Flexible Spending Account.
No Surprise Act
