I am a licensed psychologist and have been in private practice since 2005. I received my doctorate in clinical psychology from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. My clinical training has been both diverse and specialized. I’ve worked in a variety of settings including urban hospitals, community mental health centers, private residential treatment centers, social services agencies, city school systems, and a university counseling center.
Early in my training, I served as a research assistant on multiple studies funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
I received extensive training in psychoeducational assessment and neuropsychological assessment. I completed a two year post-doctoral fellowship in the Baltimore City Public School System where I largely focused on testing and community mental health with immigrant populations.
I have extensive training in the treatment of eating disorders and the majority of my practice is devoted to this area. Before entering private practice I worked at The Renfrew Center in Coconut Creek, Florida as well as The Center for Eating Disorders at Sheppard Pratt in Towson, Maryland. I am passionate about promoting positive body image and empowering young girls and women. I am also committed to helping those in mid-life who are struggling for the first time with disordered eating or who have relapsed after many years of being in recovery. Additionally, I work with parents and partners who have a loved one in treatment for an eating disorder, providing education and support.
