Narrative of Services:

I use research-based methods with adults who are struggling with OCD, anxiety, depression, stress, rumination, and other mental health challenges. Before I became a therapist, I was a practicing lawyer for 17 years. That experience informs my work with clients as we find their inner advocate and, often, a more compelling or more accurate narrative of their lives. Our brains are both fantastic and oddly glitchy; it is important to understand how yours works to manage OCD, so that learning is key to my approach. You are not that anxious voice in your head; let’s clarify and pursue YOUR path.

Treatment of Co-occurring Disorders:

Depression, anxiety (GAD, social anxiety, agoraphobia, specific phobias), OCPD, perfectionism and career related stress are frequently co-occurring mental health concerns that I also treat using an approach that integrates CBT, ERP, and ACT. I also treat couples whose relationships are impacted by OCD and/or these co-occurring concerns. I am trained in Gottman Method Couples Therapy (Level 1).

Training Description:

I began treating OCD in January 2023, as a Graduate Trainee at a well-known practice in the world of OCD treatment in New York, under the supervision and training of leading psychologists in the specialty, including my primary supervisor, who has over 30-years’ experience treating OCD and is a frequent contributor to the OCD Stories podcast. After receiving my Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling, I continued as a Staff Psychotherapist at this practice, and now also work under the supervision and tutelage of an IOCD-member psychologist, who is also a leader in the treatment of OCD, perfectionism, and trauma.

Diversity Statement:

I enthusiastically welcome clients from all populations and cultures to my practice. I have experience treating members of the LGBTQIA+ population, as well as individuals from a range of religious and ethnic backgrounds. I am always keen to learn about how a client’s background and/or community shapes their experience of OCD, anxiety, and other mental health challenges, and you will always be seen and heard as a unique individual in my office.

I studied multicultural counseling as part of my graduate studies at Pace University, and also related skills, in my legal training at Columbia Law School. As a former attorney, serving both as defense counsel, and later, as a Chief Trial Attorney for the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, I spent nearly two decades advocating and fighting for the cause of justice, and serving clients across diverse populations.
