I am a licensed clinical psychologist with extensive experience working with adolescents, adults and families in psychotherapy and evaluation.
Upon receiving a doctorate from Long Island University, I completed the National Institute of Health (NIH)-funded postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, where I am currently Clinical Assistant Professor and have conducted NIH-funded clinical research on depression, trauma, substance and behavioral addiction. I currently serve as a consulting psychologist in secondary schools and colleges in the Philadelphia metropolitan area.
Substance and behavioral addiction treatment has been a special area of interest and expertise, especially in adolescents and adults who have concerns about their substance use, gambling or internet addiction.
