I began my training and education in psychology, earning a bachelor's degree in Behavioral Science, shortly after tragically losing both my parents. Psychology helped me to heal and grow, and I became obsessed about learning as much as I could about the mind-brain connection.  I went on to get 2 masters degrees, one in Behavioral Psychology and the other in Business Psychology, then continued on to earn a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience.

Over the years following my parents death, I went to many different therapists / coaches and spent tens of thousands of dollars looking for help and ways to end my suffering.  Quite honestly, I never felt they helped me in any significant way.  I knew there had to be a more effective approach that utilized our brains capability to change and adapt, that could genuinely help people.  That belief was the impetus for how and why I chose to break the mold, and implement this cutting edge approach.  I later became a Certified Life Coach so I could help clients in a less traditional and antiquated manner.  My goal was, and still is, to teach clients to utilize all of what I have learned in a more practical and impactful way.  This approach has helped them improve the quality of their lives, without having to spend countless years on the couch of their therapist or coach.

I have been in practice for 19 years and have worked with many Fortune 500 companies as their in-house psychologist and executive coach. Over the past two decades, I have donated thousands of hours providing mental health services to socio-economically challenged communities.

As a coach with a Ph.D. in cognitive neuroscience, I understand how to teach people to discard the attitudes and beliefs that hold them back by actually changing their brains. In place of those old bad habits, I teach them to embrace, develop, and grow the tools they need to succeed to their full potential. It’s a huge shift, and the key to making that extreme and all-important change is the amazing concept threaded through my entire strategy, neuroplasticity.

I have an avid intellect, a keen understanding of human nature and an uncanny ability to connect with my clients.  I am hands on, intuitive, compassionate and honest

I have lived in NYC for 16 years and still consider it the best city in the world.  I love to eat great food, drink wine and travel.  I am happily married for over two decades and have one son who attends Princeton University.  We have 2 dogs with whom I am utterly infatuated!
