About Me

I am a New York State licensed clinical psychologist. I received my B.F.A in playwriting from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, and my M.A. and Ph.D. in clinical psychology from The New School for Social Research. My clinical internship training was completed at Columbia University Medical Center.

In addition to my private practice, I am a clinical supervisor at The New School for Social Research and the City College of New York, and an adjunct professor of psychology at Fordham University. My writing on the intersection of mental health and technology has appeared in Kill Screen, Logic, and elsewhere.

My first book, The Gaming Mind: A New Psychology of Videogames and the Power of Play, will be published by The Experiment in North America on March 31, 2020. It is currently available in the United Kingdom under the title Universal Play, published by Little, Brown.
