In addition to being a researcher and professor, I am a cognitive behavior therapist (CBT). I provide support and teach therapeutic techniques from Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I am licensed to provide services to people in New York State (license # 025137-01).
I provide evidence-based psychotherapy for mental health problems. Sessions are usually 45 minutes long and conducted remotely via video conference.
I specialize in working with people who have depression, anxiety, and PTSD. However, I have experience treating insomnia, stress, self-doubt, and grief. I am licensed to provide services to people in New York State. I am typically not a good fit for people with needs related to psychosis/schizophrenia, autism, bipolar disorder, or suicidal behavior.
Typically I meet with people first for a brief, free, 15-minute phone consultation. In this session I will ask about your needs and describe my approach. After that, we can decide whether to schedule a 45-minute initial diagnostic appointment and continue to determine whether I am a good fit for your needs. If we decide to do engage in psychotherapy, we will develop a plan of action and work together to achieve your goals in weekly 45-minute sessions.
I am considered out-of-network by insurance companies. However, I encourage you to file for reimbursement through your insurance company. I am able to provide a Statement for Insurance Reimbursement, or "Superbill" for this purpose. Cost of the initial appointment and follow-up sessions are comparable to average cost of therapy services with clinical psychologists in New York.
