Clinical Practice

I am the Assistant Director of The Center for Optimal Living, a psychotherapy and training institution in NYC organized around principles of integrative harm reduction psychotherapy.  My approach is interactive and focuses on the development of practical skills to manage intense emotions, reduce self-judgment, and promote self-compassion.  I incorporate mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral techniques in my work and provide individual therapy, supervision and consultation.

Recent pieces I've written about my clinical work for can be found here.  A summary of a recent panel we hosted on women's issues was recently published at's ProTalk.

Consultation & Trainings

I have organized and participated in several workshops and trainings on the topics of mindfulness, trauma, and integrative harm reduction psychotherapy.  I am available to consult with organizations who want to incorporate harm reduction and mindfulness techniques into their programs.
