I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Virginia Tech in 2007.  I'm a NY State licensed psychologist and specialize in the treatment of trauma and addiction in women.  I work as a Supervising Psychologist at the Women's Health Project at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital and I'm also the Assistant Director of the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Concentration at the New School for Social Research.  My clinical interests include cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, harm reduction, and motivational interviewing.  In addition, I'm interested in how meditation and yoga  can enhance the recovery process for individuals with PTSD and addictions.  I'm affiliated with the School for Compassionate Action, which promotes the integration of psychology with mind-body practices such as yoga and meditation.
