Education and Training
I earned my Master’s of Social Work (M.S.W.) from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College, and my Ph.D. in Social Welfare from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. I completed advanced training at the National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP), a progressive psychoanalytic training institute in New York.
Service in the Field
In addition to seeing clients in my Chelsea office, I work as an Assistant Professor in the Community and Human Services Department of SUNY Empire State College, where I help train the next generation of clinical social workers. I am a co-founder of the one-year post-master’s program in child and adolescent treatment at NIP. I serve on the advisory board of Little Sisters of the Assumption, a home visiting program for new mothers in East Harlem. I served as the Clinical Director for the Pelletier School, a day treatment school for at-risk adolescents. And I volunteered as a group therapist at the Gay Men’s Health Crisis and conducted training throughout the city for health care professionals.
