In my work, I value knowledge and care. I believe that good theoretical foundations and extensive training are fundamental for this work as is the capacity to hold a stance of curiosity and continuous learning. However, knowledge and curiosity alone are not enough to promote healing. I find that the capacity to care for my patients in a way that makes them feel listened to and understood is essential for a good outcome. It is my hope that my patients feel they are in the hands of someone who is both knowledgeable and caring.
I started my private practice in New York City in 2016 after having worked for several years in outpatient clinics in New York City and in Italy.
I first pursued my graduate studies in Clinical Psychology at the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, Milan, Italy, and completed my clinical training at the San Raffaele Hospital’s outpatient and inpatient psychiatric unit in 2008. In this setting, I specialized in the study and treatment of Personality Disorders and was awarded a fellowship to train at the Personality Disorder Institute of Weill-Cornell, New York, which I completed.
I then pursued a doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Long Island University, New York, and trained in a variety of settings, mainly focusing on working with children, adolescents, and their families. My training in child therapy was completed at the Child Development Center of The Jewish Board of Families and Children’s Services (JBFCF), at the Saint Dominic’s Family Services, and at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute, working with a wide age range of children.
