I have been in clinical practice since 2010. I completed my doctoral degree at Suffolk University in Boston, and engaged in research and clinical training at several Boston-area institutions, including Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School, the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders (CARD) at Boston University, and the VA Boston Healthcare System/BU School of Medicine. I previously worked as an Independent Assessor for several clinical trials within the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS).
In addition to my clinical practice, I currently work as a Research Psychologist in the VA Connecticut Healthcare System/Yale School of Medicine, studying the use of intimate partner violence among veterans.
My approach to therapy is informed by my extensive clinical research experience. I have published over 30 peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters, and technical reports, and my work has been funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). A list of my peer-reviewed publications can be found here.
Meeting with Me
My aim is to provide a comfortable, welcoming, and relaxed space in which you can share your authentic self. My focus throughout therapy is to appreciate and respect your humanity and autonomy, while also inviting you to examine and challenge yourself in new ways. I consider it a great privilege to do this work, and I am frequently inspired by my clients’ dedication to improving their lives.
Our work begins with 1-3 sessions of assessment and exploration, which is a great time for you to determine whether our partnership is the right fit for you. If we decide to work together, the course of our treatment will be determined collaboratively according to your personal goals and needs.
