In a Nutshell

I am a licensed clinical psychologist who works to improve people's lives by helping them heal from interpersonal injury and the self-harm of fear, doubt, loathing and despair. 

Clinical Practice

I provide psychotherapy through a faculty practice at Mount Sinai Beth Israel. I see children, youth, adults, and families across the age range and for a variety of issues. You can learn more about my practice by visiting or by contacting me directly

Once you enter Fierman Hall, sign in with the security guard. Take the elevator to the 5th floor. Take a left, then go into the hallway on your right. Walk down the hall and my office is on the left, next to the bathroom.

If my door is closed, you can wait in small waiting room by the elevator. 


Public Service

Since 2009, I have had the honor of receiving funding through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration's National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative to develop a program that helps children and families across our nation heal from the impact of traumatic stress. Through this program, called the Center for Child Trauma and Resilience, we provide direct clinical care to hundreds of children, youth and families; help to train hundreds of clinicians in trauma-informed practices within our own hospitals and in community agencies across New York City and the United States; and advocate for the needs of traumatized children and families. We are currently focusing our efforts to help families involved in child welfare, juvenile justice, and the military.

I serve on two non-profit boards:

  1. Board of Directors for Korean Community Services of New York, helping them create the first ever mental health clinic dedicated to serving the Korean community in New York
  2. Advisory Board for Creative Alternatives of New York, helping them heal traumatized people through a unique and powerful form of drama therapy.
