I am a licensed clinical psychologist with advanced training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).  Throughout my clinical training, I have received specialized training in child and adolescent psychotherapy.  I am bilingual and am able to conduct therapy in English and Bengali.

I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania and received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University.  I received my predoctoral clinical training at various psychiatric facilities in New York City, including NYU Child Study Center, Columbia University Medical Center, New York State Psychiatric Institute, and Woodhull Medical Center.  Upon graduation, I completed a postdoctoral fellowship at NewYork-Presbyterian, Westchester Division, where I gained further expertise in providing Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for anxiety in children and adults of all ages.

My research interests include predictors of depression and suicidal behavior and the mental health needs of immigrant communities.  I have co-authored articles that have been published in the Journal of Affective Disorders, Archives of Suicide Research, and the International Journal of Adolescent Medicine and Health.

My professional affiliations include the American Psychological Association (APA) and the New York State Psychological Association (NYSPA).
