I am a licensed clinical psychologist, with a MA and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Carlos Albizu University (2001), and BA from Bar-Ilan University. I am a practitioner and certified facilitator of the Gordan Neufeld Institute. I have worked with diverse populations treating a wide range of issues in settings such as a highschool for troubled teens, university and public mental health clinics, an out-patient psychiatric dual diagnosis and geriatric treatment facility, a residential eating disorder center, and private practice.
My goal as a therapist is to provide for my clients a safe, understanding and empathic environment from which to explore both their relationship with themselves and others and thus facilitate the process of self-relection, growth and emotional healing that allows them to reach their personal full potenial. For insight, I draw primarily from relational and developmental attachment paradigms. Depending on the specific needs of the individual, I integrate evidence-based approaches such as psychodynatic psychotherapy, expressive therapy and cognitive techniques such as mindfulness, somatic awareness, and Seefar CBT (for the treatment of trauma). I also provide parental and educational consultation and facilitate parenting workshops and seminars. As a parental consultant, I help parents and educators deepen their attachments with their children and students, providing the guidance needed to raise responsible and caring children without becoming overwhelmed by this often confusing and seemingly daunting task.
