I have a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from The School of Psychology at Florida Institute of Technology and a Master's in Psychology from The Graduate Faculty at the New School for Social Research.
I am also a member of American Psychology Association, New York State Psychological Association and Manhattan Society of Clinical Hypnosis, and am certified in hypnosis from The American Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
In my practice, I work with individuals, couples, children, and adolescents. I help patients to lose weight, quit smoking, manage anger and stress, improve self-esteem, and overcome phobias. I also work with patients on a variety of other issues including, but not limited to, depression, obsessional thoughts (OCD), compulsive behaviors, insomnia, marital problems, and PTSD. I aim to help my patients form better habits in their daily routines to improve happiness and energy levels.
I use a combination of psychotherapy and hypnotherapy to garner an understanding in my patients of how and why bad habits have formed and how we can promote change through enhanced self-awareness, more effective coping skills, and the confidence to integrate these techniques.
