I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Assistant Professor of Psychology in Clinical Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College. I provide psychotherapy to adults throughout the life cycle in both the student mental health department and faculty practice. I work within a psychodynamic and relational framework and approach clients with an empathic and nonjudgmental style to facilitate the process of healing and finding unique attributes and strengths to overcome adversity and thrive.
