About Me

I have worked in the mental health field since 2006, having had the privilege of supporting a wide array of people in the depths of their suffering and witnessing astounding resilience. I have received advanced clinical training and worked in outpatient clinics, hospital inpatient units, and college counseling centers, providing individual, couples, and group therapy to adolescents and adults from manifold backgrounds dealing with a range of anxiety, mood, personality, psychotic, and eating disorders. I also spent several years conducting psychosocial assessments and providing counseling services to Holocaust survivors.

My Practice

I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Washington, DC and I provide psychotherapy to individuals and couples in my office in Dupont Circle. In addition to my private practice, I am an Assistant Clinical Professor at George Washington University and I help train clinical psychology doctoral students in the practice of psychotherapy. I am also currently a member of the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis (ICP&P), the Washington School of Psychiatry, and the American Psychological Association. 

Education

I received my B.A. from Johns Hopkins University with a major in Psychological and Brain Sciences, and my Master's and Doctoral degrees in Clinical Psychology from George Washington University, where I conducted research on the interaction between attachment style and therapeutic alliance.
