About Me

 

Any human anywhere will blossom in a hundred unexpected talents and capacities simply by being given the opportunity to do so.

—Doris Lessing

 

I am a licensed psychologist specializing in co-occurring mental health, substance use, and physical health disorders.  Using a variety of evidence-based and promising practices in my work including motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, contemplative psychotherapy, and integrated wellness self-management, I help my clients build on their own inner strengths and enhance their capacity to cope with life’s stressors. I am passionate about assisting people who wish to manage their weight by integrating mindful activity and nutrition practices while building self-esteem and a healthy body image. 

Formerly the Coordinator of the Office of Health Integration at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene,  I co-directed the Mind Your Health Peer Coaching Program, a peer health and wellness coach training program, and co-authored the City Health Information publication “Improving the Health of Adults with Serious Mental Illness” in 2010. I graduated from the New School for Social Research in New York City with a PhD in psychology and an MA in psychology with a concentration in substance abuse counseling. I completed a certificate in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and provide treatment for individuals with mental health and co-occurring substance use and physical health disorders.
