I am an Assistant Professor at Weill Cornell Medical College and an Assistant Attending Psychologist at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. I am a licensed clinical psychologist with extensive experience helping adults from diverse backgrounds overcome a wide range of difficulties, such as depression, anxiety, OCD, insomnia, addiction, trauma, acculturation, minority stress, and LGBTQ issues. I am committed to providing a nonjudgmental and supportive environment that allows you to express yourself freely and feel heard fully. I strive to build a trusting therapeutic relationship and an authentic connection with you. I specialize in CBT, DBT, ACT, and mindfulness-based approaches. Drawing from my expertise in evidence-based techniques, I work collaboratively with you to tailor sessions that best meet your needs. I conduct cutting-edge research advancing knowledge of psychopathology and its treatment, which keeps me current on the latest knowledge in the field. My practice integrates the best available research, my clinical expertise, and your unique values. My ultimate goal is for you to break the bondage of unhelpful patterns, realize the power of your strengths, and fulfill the meaning of your life.
