    After completing my Ph.D. in School/Clinical Psychology from New York University, I completed two year postdoctoral training in Pediatric Neuropsychology from St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital. I worked with children, adolescents and young adults with various kinds of neurological, developmental and learning difficulties through my training years.

    Currently, I am the Assistant Professor in Psychiatry at Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai and the Director of the Neuropsychological Services at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital. The service that I run involves the evaluation of cognitive abilities and psychiatric functioning using a battery of standardized assessment measures.  These evaluations can be used to help diagnose or rule out different conditions (e.g., Autism, ADHD) as well as to describe the impact of a condition (e.g., hydrocephalus, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, Traumatic Brain Injury) on a person’s functioning (social skills, learning, and academic functioning).

    I teach and supervise pre-doctoral psychology interns, psychology post-doctoral students and psychiatry fellows who are a part of the Neuropsychological Service. In addition, I conduct comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations with children, adolescents and young adults with varied conditions (e.g., neurological, neurodevelopmental, learning).

Industry Relationships

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
