Welcome - and thank you for visiting my site. I am a licensed clinical psychologist in New York, California, and Florida. I have a private practice in Miami and am a co-occurring (eating disorders and addictions) specialist/consultant at Oliver-Pyatt Treatment Centers, a comprehensive eating disorder facility in South Miami. Prior to this, I was a staff psychologist at Columbia University Medical Center in New York and at UCLA Counseling Center in Los Angeles. I am an eating disorder and addiction specialist and also focus on anxiety and mood disorders, infertility, relationship concerns, and sport and exercise psychology.
My office is located in Coral Gables, FL, near the University of Miami and convenient to South Miami, Pinecrest, Coconut Grove, Brickell, and other surrounding neighborhoods.
I work with individuals and groups, using an approach that blends cognitive-behavioral (CBT), dialectical-behavioral (DBT), pyschodynamic, and interpersonal techniques. I also have training in family-based treatment (FBT, also known as the Maudsley Approach) for eating disorders. The goal of my work is to help clients address their concerns and arrive at a more comfortable and effective place in their lives.
Feel free to check this site often, as I continue to update regularly. For more about me and the services I offer, you can explore the tabs above. For information on eating/body image concerns, visit: Eat-in-Peace. You can also find me featured as an "Ask the Expert" columnist on The Fix, a Pro Corner author on Recovery, and a National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) Blogger.
**2015: Please note that I am not accepting new patients in the New York City or Los Angeles offices at this time. I am available for consultations and remote work with established patients in NY and CA.
