    I am a clinical psychologist with over 15 years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults, older adults and their families. I graduated from Long Island University, C. W. Post Campus with a Psy.D., with a concentration in Developmental Disabilities and completed an APA-accredited pre-doctoral internship where I received additional training in psychological assessment and in serious and persistent mental illnesses with adolescents, adults, and older adults.

    After receiving my doctorate, I also worked for over two years on a Child/Adolescent Inpatient Unit, providing psychological testing, individual, family, and group therapies and case management to culturally and economically diverse children, adolescents, and families with a wide range of psychological problems, mental disorders, and developmental disabilities.
