About Me

I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from University of Miami, completed my pre-doctoral internship at Pace University Counseling Center, and completed my postdoctoral fellowship on the Eating Disorders Treatment Team of NYU Student Health Center. I also completed my psychoanalytic training at William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis, & Psychology.

Prior to entering full-time practice, I served as a Primary Therapist for the day treatment program at Columbus Park Collaborative, an eating disorders treatment center in New York City. I have also taught clinical theory and technique in the masters counseling programs at New York University and John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

When I am not working with patients, I devote time to groups and organizations that align with my passions. I am a member of the Division of Psychoanalysis of the American Psychological Association (APA), where I have presented original work, and the American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA).  I also serve as Chair of the LGBTQ Study Group of the William Alanson White Institute. I am involved with AIDS Health Foundation and their efforts to reduce rates and stigma around HIV/AIDS through advocacy and sexual health education.

I also host the podcast New Books in Psychology, part of the New Books Network, where I interview authors of recent and cutting-edge books in psychology.
