I hold a PhD in clinical psychology from Fairleigh Dickinson University, where I trained in both Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic psychotherapy. I completed specialized training in CBT for anxiety disorders and OCD at Mount Sinai Hospital, and in the psychodynamic treatment of personality disorders and serious mental illness at Nassau University Medical Center.
I am passionate about CBT for anxiety disorders and OCD, because it is an extremely effective treatment for these issues. Even patients who have not responded to other types of therapy are likely to benefit greatly from CBT.
My writing and teaching focus on helping patients and therapists to maximize the effectiveness of CBT through a clear conceptualization of how these disorders work.
I see patients in Beverly Hills and via teletherapy in the states where I am licensed (California, New York, and Virginia).
