I have been a practicing psychologist for over 30 years, with offices on both the North and South shores of Long Island. I offer teletherapy services to my patients when they are not able to transport to my offices or they have relocated within New York State. As one the few psychologists on Long Island using Virtual Reality Therapy in my practice, I am treating phobias and anxieties in patients of all ages.
In addition to my private practice, I consult to Smile Potential Dental Practice Coaching, health centers, and corporations. In order to help educate others about psychological health issues, I also produce a podcast show called, “The Shrink Is “on iTunes. I have earned two Masters Degrees in psychology and a Ph.D. in Professional Psychology with a dual specialization in Clinical and School Psychology. I am a certified school psychologist and a licensed psychologist in New York State. I am also a Distance Credentialed Counselor (DCC) through the Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE). I am a member of the American Psychological Association, New York State Psychological Association, Nassau County Psychological Association and the Suffolk County Psychological Association.
