I am originally from Augsburg in Bavaria and came to New York in the 90's. Prior to moving to New York, I spent three years living and working in Hong Kong. I completed my undergraduate degree at Hunter College in New York and continued to graduate school, earning my doctorate in psychology from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. During my training, I’ve worked in a variety of settings, including a college treatment center, a nursery school, a parent child center, a Manhattan elementary school, as well as The Child Life program at the Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital.
As a now long-time resident of the US with strong cultural ties to Europe, my own immigration experience has naturally informed and shaped my thinking as a psychologist and draws me to working with individuals seeking to integrate varied cultural backgrounds into their lives. I’ve been in private practice on the UWS of Manhattan since 2012 and in southern Westchester since 2015. After living in Manhattan for many years, I moved to Southern Westchester 11 years ago where I now live with my husband and two children. In my psychotherapy and testing practice, I work with individuals and families of all ages and with a wide range of issues.
I look forward to bringing my experience and training to GISNY, working with students and their families to manage any emotional or behavioral challenges or to problem-solve any barriers to optimal learning. I am enthusiastic about becoming a part of this international community.
