Personal Statement

I am an Assistant Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medicine and an Assistant Attending Psychologist at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. I am a licensed clinical psychologist and I specialize in the neuropsychological assessment and therapeutic treatment of middle-aged and older adults.  I take an integrative and personalized approach to therapy, tailoring research-supported therapeutic techniques to meet each individual’s unique needs and circumstances. I provide individual therapy for older adults with depression, anxiety and other mood disorders, caregivers of medically ill patients, and adults coping with neurologic or other medical conditions. I also have specialized training in neuropsychological assessment and aim to use comprehensive evaluations to facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of individuals with suspected changes in cognitive or behavioral functioning.
