I am a licensed clinical psychologist who works with adults and couples in New York and in Florida (telehealth only). I hold an MA in psychology from The New School and a PhD in clinical psychology from The Graduate Center, CUNY where I wrote my doctoral dissertation on the effects of two kinds of stereotype threat on implicit racial bias in African-Americans. My pre-doctoral internship training took place at Woodhull Hospital where I provided psychotherapy and psychological testing to children, adolescents, and adults. I subsequently completed a two-year post-doctoral fellowship at the Center for Progressive Psychotherapy where I worked with adults and couples.
Prior to practicing clinical psychology, I parlayed my athletic ability on the football field into a full scholarship to Boston College before graduating from Hampton University. My enthusiasm for athletics, physical fitness, and wellness inspired me to subsequently work as a celebrity fitness trainer at one of the most exclusive gyms in New York City. Over my 15+ year career, I’ve been able to help hundreds of clients not only lose weight and tone up, but also improve their capacity to overcome adversity by adopting a growth mindset. Realizing the critical connection between physical and mental health, I utilize my mind-body expertise as a clinical psychologist to help patients overcome their stuck points to achieve their goals.
As a contributing writer to health and wellness publications and public speaker on implicit racial bias for Fortune 500 companies, I’m passionate about sharing my expertise.
