Education and Professional Experience

 

I received my Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology of Yeshiva University, and my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Michigan.

 

I began my own private practice in 2013.  For the eleven years prior to that, I served as a clinical psychologist and founding Director of the Child and Adolescent Program at The Ross Center for Anxiety & Related Disorders in Washington, D.C..  My work before that time was at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, where I was a pediatric psychologist in the Division of Gastroenterology and Nutrition: Center for Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease; the Weight Management Program; and the Pediatric Center for Dysphagia and Feeding Management. 

 

My pre-doctoral experience included a full-time internship in behavior analysis and developmental disabilities at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia/University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Children’s Seashore House: Division of Child Development and Rehabilitation Medicine.  I also completed part-time externships during my graduate training at Bronx Children’s Psychiatric Center/ Albert Einstein College of Medicine; Children’s Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center of the Rose F. Kennedy Center/ Albert Einstein College of Medicine;  Center for Psychological and Psychoeducational Services, Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Yeshiva University, Bronx, NY; and the Hastings-on-Hudson, NY, School District.
