Director and Co-Founder of North Jersey Psychology Associates

Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Specialist


As a therapist, I foster a collaborative, trusting environment so you can make the changes you want in your life. My aim is to partner with people to identify and break down barriers preventing them from achieving their life goals. We'll talk about your values, and together we'll figure out what is getting in the way of acting on them. I use a cognitive-behavioral approach, combining acceptance-based strategies, mindfulness, and goal-oriented techniques. This type of therapy is focused on solving problems and reducing or managing distressing symptoms. Clients have described me as warm but also direct, and have told me this approach helps them make progress when they are feeling stuck.

I work with adults and adolescents with a variety of anxiety, mood, and personality disorders. I also focus on relationship and work challenges, and I work with both couples and families. I specialize in the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), having been trained by a renowned expert in Exposure and Response Prevention. Many of my patients have "Purely Obsessional" (or "Pure-O") types of OCD.


I am a licensed in New Jersey where I offer in-person and telehealth sessions and in New York (telehealth sessions only). I am also part of PSYPACT, which allows me to meet with clients who are located in most states, so feel free to reach out to see if we can work together. 

​Education & Credentials

I received my B.A. in Psychology from Harvard University and my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Fairleigh Dickinson University. I have worked with clients in both outpatient and hospital settings, and I have been trained in cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy techniques, and mindfulness and acceptance-based strategies.
