I am a licensed psychologist with more than 25 years in practice and a Senior Advisor at Counseling and Nutrition Center 360. With empathy and curiosity, I guide people along their journey to recovery. My work focuses on helping people take steps to heal, thrive, and reach their full potential. Using a non-judgmental style and actively participating in the process, I lead clients through goal setting, building their own toolbox, and developing practices of self-compassion, self-care, and mindfulness. I am an advocate of intuitive eating and ascribe to a Health at Every Size philosophy. Endorsing the team approach to healthcare, I embrace good communication for effective treatment.
After earning a BA in Psychology at Swarthmore College and a PhD in Clinical Psychology at Yeshiva University, I completed my clinical internship and post-doctoral training at New York Hospital/Cornell Medical Center in White Plains, NY. Additionally, I received a certificate in Executive Coaching from the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology and have completed training in sports psychology.

I understand that stepping through the psychotherapy door for the first time can be emotionally challenging. As an experienced psychologist, I will listen and gently direct you toward our first step together — an assessment. On our journey together, I will invite you to be curious. Even if you are struggling right now, you can heal, experiment with new strategies, grow with flexibility and self-compassion, and access your full potential.
As a licensed psychologist and eating disorder psychotherapist, my specialty is treating adults and adolescents with eating disorders and disordered eating, including athletes who face these struggles. My mission is to help people heal and thrive. I believe that full recovery is not only possible, but achievable.
I work individually with people with eating disorders or their family members, as well as people struggling with anxiety disorders, mood disorders, relationship issues, grief, and life changes.
