In addition to my current practices in Hewlett, NY and Roslyn, NY, I am an Associate Professor in the Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program at Long Island University—Post. As part of my role in the program, I supervise the clinical work of doctoral students.

Prior to moving to New York, I maintained a private practice in the Washington, DC area. From 2007 to 2012, I was an Assistant Professor in the Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program at the American School of Professional Psychology, Washington, DC.

I earned my PhD from the Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies at Adelphi University. As part of my training, I served as a doctoral extern at Bellevue Hospital. I completed both my internship and postdoctoral fellowship at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center/University Hospital of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.

I have been conducting research on psychotherapy and/or personality assessment for the past 11 years, and I have presented and published widely.

My presentations include 35 peer-reviewed and invited talks, almost all at national and international professional conferences.

I have published 10 peer-reviewed articles in professional journals, as well as six book chapters and other publications.

As part of my scholarly activities, I currently serve as a Consulting Editor for three journals, and I have been an ad hoc reviewer or Consulting Editor for six additional journals in the past.
