Nominated in 2020 as one of the Top 3 Psychologists in New York and recognized by Continental Who's Who as a Pinnacle Professional in the field of Psychology, I dedicate myself to helping you out of feeling stuck, down and anxious.
 
I have been practicing and teaching psychotherapy for more than a decade. I am sought after nationally and internationally for my skills and have been the recipient of many awards.
My career began in Paris, France, in 1999 when I obtained a DESS (a specialized diploma equivalent to a PsyD), with high honors, in clinical psychology from the University of Paris. I worked in multiple clinical settings in Paris before coming to the United States.

In 2005 I obtained a PhD in clinical psychology from the Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies–Adelphi University, which is considered one of the best programs for psychodynamic therapy training in the country. I proceeded to work for one year in an outpatient clinic and then for six years at Montefiore Medical Center as an attending psychologist providing individual, couple, and group therapy and supervising psychologists. In addition, as an assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, I was actively engaged in teaching and supervising psychiatry residents and psychology trainees. I became sought after for my teaching and supervisory skills and became the clinical supervisor to the psychology staff of Fordham University’s counseling center.

I also have had the privilege of being part of a small group of mental health professionals selected to train the best psychiatry chief residents in the country. I have received accolades for my teachings. An additional endorsement came from psychologists and psychiatrists who sought me for supervision and therapy.
I maintain an active private practice in New York City. I believe that the success of any therapy stems from a good match between patient and therapist personalities and between patient and treatment approach. I provide a comfortable, safe and warm environment while using my expertise with various forms of treatment to tailor the therapy to the patient's needs and personality. I focus on the present and help you deal with your current issues as they manifest themselves in everyday life. I actively and empathically work with you to understand your difficulties, solve problems and expand your personal growth. I provide individual, couple, and group psychotherapy for adolescents and adults in Spanish, French, and English. I offer virtual consultations.
