I received my BA in Psychology from S.U.N.Y. at Stony Brook, and both my MA and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at St. John's University. My dissertation examined the personality factors that predict professional hockey achievement.  I have been working full-time as a licensed psychologist at Creedmoor Psychiatric Center in Queens Village, New York for the past five years.  I treat severely mentally ill individuals who have co-morbid personality disorders, substance abuse disorders, and behavioral disturbances.  In addition to my adjunct professor role at New York University, I am also an adjunct instructor at Touro College.  The course I teach at NYU is Introduction to Psychological Testing (G89) fall semester only.
