As a cognitive-behavior therapist, I have worked at several hospitals and clinics including the Georgetown University Counseling and Psychiatric Service, Behavior Therapy Center of Greater Washington, and the Columbia University Clinic for Anxiety and Related Disorders. I completed my doctoral training as a psychology intern at the Bellevue Hospital Center and the NYU Child Study Center. Currently, I am a post-doctoral fellow in clinical psychology at the NYU Child Study Center. While these experiences have prepared me to work with a broad range of children, adolescents, and adults, the bulk of my training has focused on exposure therapy for anxiety disorders and cognitive therapy combined with behavioral activation for depression.
In treatment, I aim to understand how my client's emotions, thoughts, actions, and environment are contributing to their current functioning. However, I do not solely focus on distress. Clinical psychology must ease suffering and nurture growth. That is why I incorporate the latest research from Positive Psychology into my clinical work and help my clients to cultivate their strengths, increase engagement with their passions, and find meaning in their life.
As a scientist-practitioner, I regularly attend the American Psychological Association, the Anxiety Disorders Association of America, and the Obsessive-Compulsive Foundation conferences to ensure that I am delivering the latest in empirically supported treatments.
