Personal Statement

I am an instructor of psychology in clinical psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medicine and an assistant attending psychologist at NewYork-Presbyterian. I specialize in adult psychopathology and utilize evidence-based therapies, including cognitive, behavioral, attachment-focused, and mind fulness-based interventions. My approach is collaborative, supportive, and authentic. To promote holistic and durable well-being, I consider the interplay of individual concerns within their context and culture. I strive to create a safe and brave space for patients to explore and alter negative patterns, process painful experiences, and grow comfortable and confident enough to face future challenges with strength and resilience.
