I am a registered licensed clinical social worker (LCSW-R) in the states of New York and Maine. I have over 12 years of experience working as a psychotherapist with adults, families and children. I work within different therapeutic frameworks – dynamic interpretation, mindfulness based practices, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Therapy (AEDP) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), tailoring a treatment to suit each client’s needs accordingly. I am a level three AEDP therapist and received advanced DBT training from Behavioral Tech. I continue ongoing training in AEDP, DBT and other modalities and also supervise and train clinicians. I received my MSW from NYU where I am now part of the faculty and a Field Instructor teaching and supervising master level students. I received my undergraduate from Ben Gurion University in Israel.
After graduating from NYU I worked for Westchester Jewish Community Services treating adults, families, children and couples. I joined the clinic’s DBT team and ultimately became its leader. Later I formed and supervised the DBT team at Columbus Park, an eating disorder clinic in NYC. Today, alongside my private practice I am a clinical supervisor at The Crime Victims Treatment Center treating survivors of interpersonal trauma and supervising staff. In addition to individual therapy I run skills groups and a processing group for male survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
I have vast experience working with depression, anxiety, survivors of trauma, complex trauma, childhood sexual abuse, borderline personality disorder and adjustment issues related to day to day life. I work with different populations and with individuals who identify in diverse ways. I strive to create my practice as a safe and non-judgmental place, whoever you are.
Born and raised in Israel I moved to NYC to get my graduate degree from NYU. I speak English and Hebrew as mother tongues and treat in both languages.
