About Me

I have experience working in public and independent schools and in private practice. I recently left my position of 20 years as the Director of Support Services at an area independent school to focus on my private clients.  I saw first-hand the social and academic pressures and the high expectations that adolescents face in school. Especially since the pandemic, I see even more stress on the adults in their lives, including teachers and parents. I can help both adolescents and adults build the resilience to be successful in all aspects of their lives, despite experiencing hardship, disappointment or failure.

 

I received a Bachelor of Science degree from Boston University where I studied communication. I hold a Doctoral degree in psychology (Psy.D.) and a Masters degree in education (M.S.Ed.) from Pace University. I trained in schools in New York City and in Westchester County. My externship experience was at Mount Sinai Hospital conducting psychotherapy and neuropsychological evaluations with children and adolescents in outpatient and inpatient settings. My intensive internship was completed at the Postgraduate Center for Mental Health in New York City providing psychotherapy to children, adolescents, couples and families. I also was trained extensively in neuropsychological evaluation. During my training I provided psychotherapy to adults at the McShane Center for Psychological Services. Over the years, I have completed further training and professional development in many areas, including: 

  • Anxiety in children and adolescents
  • Mindfulness stress reduction and meditation
  • Executive functioning
  • Attention Deficit Disorder
  • Mood disorders
  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Crisis intervention
I currently hold licenses and registrations to practice in the following states:
New York State License # 012423
Vermont State License #0134748
Florida State registered out-of-state telehealth provider # TPPY2438
I am a member of the American Psychological Association and The Westchester County Psychological Association. I live in Westchester County with my husband and have 2 children who are now young adults.
