I am the Chief Clinical Psychologist for the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, and an Assistant Program Director in our psychiatry residency program. I am also a member of the Inclusive Excellence and Well-Being (IEWB) council. I earned my PhD in clinical psychology at Long Island University in Brooklyn, NY, and my BA at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA. I completed my predoctoral internship at NYU-Bellevue Hospital Center. Prior to joining the University of Minnesota Medical School, I was an Assistant Professor and Attending Psychologist at Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, NY.
I provide individual psychotherapy to adults at our Riverside location, and supervise trainees and clinicians in psychiatry, psychology, and social work. My clinical interests and experience are largely in cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic therapy. I am a co-investigator for research studies funded by the EPINET (Early Psychosis Intervention Network) project, an NIMH grant through Dr. Vinogradov's lab, and I provide program support and clinical consultation to our Strengths and NAVIGATE specialty teams for patients experiencing psychosis.
