I am a clinical psychologist licensed in New Jersey and Pennsylvania who specializes in treating adolescents and adults with anxiety and depression.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Princeton University. I earned my Master’s and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Rutgers University in 2011, after which I completed my clinical internship at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia University Medical Center’s Child Track. Subsequently, I completed postdoctoral training at the Child and Adolescent OCD Tic Trich and Anxiety Group (COTTAGe) at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Medicine. For the past several years, I have been providing individual psychotherapy to older adolescents and adults with anxiety and depression via telehealth video sessions.
I primarily practice Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is a present-focused therapy with a wealth of research evidence demonstrating its positive effects on mood and anxiety. In therapy sessions, I work with youth and adults to identify and challenge negative thoughts and behaviors that can maintain negative mood and anxiety, and to generate more accurate and helpful thoughts/behaviors. When relevant, I incorporate techniques from other empirically supported treatments, including Mindfulness-Based Interventions, Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Adolescents (DBT-A), and Interpersonal Therapy for Adolescents (IPT-A).
In my free time, I enjoy hiking and being in nature, reading, and spending time with my husband and two children.
