About

I am a clinical neuropsychologist specializing in the evaluation of adults ages 18 and older. I am currently licensed as a psychologist in both Pennsylvania and Delaware, and have been in private practice since moving to Pennsylvania from New York in 2015. Prior to that, I completed my PhD at Long Island University in 2014, as well as two years of postdoctoral specialization in neuropsychology, and an APA approved internship with a focus in neuropsychology. 

While I am a New Yorker at heart (although have come to love PA!), my training and early career have taken me to multiple states across the country and allowed me to train (in both clinical and research roles) with highly respected board-certified clinical neuropsychologists at a number of renowned medical institutions (among them: Columbia University Medical Center, Weill Cornell Medical Center, NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, Beth Israel Medical Center, New York State Psychiatric Institute, and several Veterans Affairs Medical Centers).

I have worked with adults across the lifespan in both outpatient and hospital settings. I have had a wide range of medical and psychiatric clinical experiences, including specialized training in epilepsy evaluation, acute TBI/stroke evaluation within a rehabilitation setting, general hospital neuropsychological consultation services, geriatric-specific training, and inpatient psychiatric evaluation. As a practitioner in private practice, I frequently evaluate patients due to concerns about ADHD, sequelae of head injuries, dementia, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, MS, and other neurological/psychiatric conditions.

Personal

Outside of work, I live in Delaware County with my husband, two little boys, and two dogs. Pennsylvania has become my home, and I love the sense of community that I’ve encountered, as well as access to urban and natural experiences here! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, jogging, baking, and gardening.
