Verified by Psychology Today

I work with adults, adolescents, and children in individual, family, and couples therapy. I listen closely to clients to understand their current problems and related symptoms, thoughts, and feelings. I work collaboratively with clients to investigate the history of their struggles and to create a plan for change.Using cognitive, behavioral, and emotion-focused approaches, I aim to facilitate healing, growth, and change.

Over the past 15+ years of conducting psychotherapy, I have been effective working with individuals struggling with emotional distress (e.g., depression, anxiety, anger), health-related problems (eating disorders, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivity, chronic fatigue syndrome, health anxiety, psychosomatic conditions) and relationship difficulties.

I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Dartmouth College and Rutgers University, respectively. In addition to practicing as a licensed psychologist, I serve on the faculty at Princeton University and at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. I have been teaching and writing about doing psychotherapy for over 15 years.
