Headway

I am a clinical psychologist whose expertise is largely derived from completion of pre and postdoctoral internships at Yale University School of Medicine, and 25 years in private practice. In addition, I served as an Assistant Clinical Professor within the Yale Department of Psychiatry for over twenty years. In my private practice, I provide services to adults (18 and older), with a primary focus on insight-oriented individual psychotherapy and assessment of neurocognitive functioning. Cognitive functioning is evaluated using a battery of objective tests, including tests of attention/concentration, language, visual spatial skills, memory and executive functions such as planning and organization. The neuropsychological evaluation includes a thorough interview and review of available medical records, and helps to clarify the etiology and pattern of any cognitive difficulties an individual is experiencing. It also sheds light on areas of cognitive strength, which are equally important to understand and highlight in delineating a treatment plan. Some of the common diagnostic questions addressed by a neuropsychological evaluation include: attention deficit disorder, traumatic brain injury, stroke, normal age-related decline vs. dementia, and the cognitive effects of neurodegenerative illnesses. My interpersonal style is highly supportive and empathic. I aim to be help every client feel comfortable by providing a safe non-judgmental environment in which one’s thoughts and feelings -as well as any symptoms and concerns- can be openly discussed. I am honored to serve others in this capacity and am dedicated to helping at all stages of the diagnostic and therapeutic process.
