I am a licensed psychologist who has been practicing in New York City for over twenty years and has been in private practice since completing my Fellowship. During this time I have also been a Clinical Instructor of Psychiatry at NYU Medical Center where I have supervised psychiatry residents in conducting Cognitive Behavior Therapy. I have also worked as a neuropsychologist with Dr. Lenard Adler, the Director of the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) also at the NYU Medical Center where I provide evaluations and sometimes psychotherapy/coaching with individuals with ADHD. In addition I continue to perform neuropsychological evaluations referred by several psychologists, neurologists and other professionals.
In my private practice I perform extensive neuropsychological and psychological evaluations for a variety of individuals including those who may have ADHD, Learning Disorders, cognitive difficulties as a result of possible neurological problems (e.g. head injuries, strokes, dementia, etc.), and possible psychological problems. These individuals range in age from children to seniors. Many of the evaluations I perform are for individuals who are in school and require clarification and documentation of their particular difficulties for purposes of obtaining accommodations while they are at school and/or when they are taking standardized testing.
I also provide psychotherapy for teenagers and adults who have a variety of psychological diagnoses including depression and anxiety. In my practice, I primarily utilize Cognitive Behavior Therapy techniques though other modalities are provided if needed. In addition, I provide cognitive remediation, a form of rehabilitation for individuals who have been diagnosed with neuropsychological problems related to thinking and memory, resulting from neurological problems.
