Description:

After earning my Masters of Science in Bilingual School Psychology and a Masters of Social Work, I began a career in early childhood education at a special education preschool, where I worked full time as a Bilingual School Psychologist for 6 years. I have been in my current position as a School Psychologist and Social Worker for the city of New York for the past 11 years, and am fortunate to teach a number of courses at DRS High School, including AP Psychology. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Jewish Educational Leadership.

I am an avid participant and lecturer in the emerging field of Positive Psychology, I wrote and developed a curriculum called "The Science of Happiness" which is geared toward increasing an individual's optimism, sense of self efficacy, emotional well-being and overall resilience.

I have been working with couples for the past 17 years, providing parent training for students with special needs, and working with adolescents and their parents. In April of 2010, I began training with the Gottman Institute to provide couples in my private practice with the highest level of service backed by science. I am currently the only Frum Certified Gottman Therapist in New York.

I use an approach called positive psychology. Our primary goal in working together is guiding you toward a more happy, meaningful and fulfilling life. From work, to marriage, to social relationships, and raising children, you will learn effective emotion coaching kills that you will be able to apply across all areas of your life. Together we will increase positive emotions, engagement, meaning, and relationships in your life.

We will conduct a character strengths test and begin working with your strengths across all areas of your life. I will show you how to use self concordant goals in order to achieve desired results in your job, marriage or with your children. Self concordant goals are goals that you choose that are aligned with you
