My area of expertise is public safety psychology. Prior to opening my practice in Northern New Jersey, I provided psychological services to the men and women of the Washington, DC Police Department. As a former law enforcement officer, I understand that the needs of first responders are unique. I am familiar with the organizational dynamics in law enforcement agencies as well as the police culture. I understand the unique stressors and working conditions first responders face on a daily basis. Shift work, longer hours, and the hazards of public safety also have disruptive effects on families. I provide therapy for couples and families impacted by the first responder’s job. Additionally, I offer post critical incident intervention as well as consultation and training to public service agencies.
