I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in the states of New York and Maine. I have over eight 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 one AEDP therapist and received my DBT training from Behavioral Tech. I continue ongoing training in AEDP, DBT and other modalities and also supervise and train clinicians myself. I received my MSW from NYU where I am now an Adjunct Teacher teaching the Human Behvaior II course and a Field Instructor 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. Today, in addition to my private practice I work at The Crime Victims Treatment Center at Mt. Sinai West and St. Luke’s Hospitals treating survivors of interpersonal trauma. I also consult for the DBT team at Columbus Park Collaborative, a private eating disorder clinic in Manhattan. 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. My practice is 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.
