About Me

I am a Miami native and received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from University of Miami. I went on to train and practice in New York City for ten years—completing my pre-doctoral internship at Pace University Counseling Center, my postdoctoral fellowship on the Eating Disorders Treatment Team of NYU Student Health Center, and my psychoanalytic training at William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis, & Psychology. I returned home to Miami in 2018 and practice in Coral Gables.

In addition to working with patients privately, I am a university psychologist and coordinator of the eating disorder service at FIU’s Counseling and Psychological Services. I am also a member of the Division of Psychoanalysis (39) of the American Psychological Association (APA), where I have presented original work; and the American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA).  I am also former Chair of the LGBTQ Study Group of the William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis, & Psychology.

I also host the podcast entitled New Books in Psychology, part of the New Books Network, where I interview authors of recent and cutting-edge books in psychology. You can listen and subscribe here:
