Licensed Psychologist in the States of New York and Florida
Hello, I am a psychologist licensed to practice in New York and Florida. My goal is to provide you with accessible, well rounded psychological services. My focus is to create an individualized plan, which will promote your personal growth. I believe in accessibility to care, and include home visits as part of my service philosophy.
I incorporate the use of the Cognitive Behavioral Approach and the principles of Solution Focused Brief Therapy to assist my clients with Life Transitions and Adjustment. I work with adults, adolescents, children and families. My work with adolescents and children takes into consideration the developmental and emotional needs of the client both in the academic and family setting. To facilitate family well being, academic success and emotional health, I provide psycho-educational testing, parent and caregiver support and training. I create brief and usable behavior plans, which can are tailored to your needs.
My experience as a consulting psychologist with the NYULangone Medical Center/Bellevue Hospital Department of Pediatrics and the New York City Board of Education, Early Intervention and CPSE programs gives me a breadth of knowledge which allows me to uniquely address each family's concerns utilizing the most relevant and up to date research and skills.
I have a passion for understanding how we interact with our environment and have pursued the study of mediation and dispute resolution, as well as, training in mediation with Teachers College Columbia University. I teach courses in conflict management for Fordham University and the NYU Silver School of Social Work, as well as, a course focusing on Social Problems for Clinical Psychologists for Teachers College Columbia University.
My interest in the therapeutic use of animals, led me to become a registered therapeutic horseback riding instructor with PATH International, Inc.
