Mental Health Nurse Practitioner and Therapist
I am a board-certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner with more than 25 years’ experience treating individual adults and teens, adult couples, and families of all ages. In addition to psychotherapy, I am licensed to prescribe medication. I am a senior clinician and supervisor at New York-Presbyterian Westchester Behavioral Health Center in White Plains, New York, and I see patients in my private practice in Mount Kisco, New York.
I treat the full range of mental health disorders, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and perinatal and postpartum mood disorders. I also treat people who simply need help in addressing circumstances that are interfering with their enjoyment of life. My expertise includes cognitive behavioral strategies that can help you change negative thinking patterns.
My style is active and engaged, and I view trust, honesty and humor as key ingredients in forming an effective working relationship with my clients. I encourage you to ask questions, and I explain treatment options so that we both agree on treatment approaches and goals.
