Professional Statement

  • 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.
