About Me

Albert Einstein College of Medicine


Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

I am a clinical psychologist and certified sexual health therapist who provides individual interventions to women with cancer. I currently serve as the Head of the Female Sexual Medicine and Women’s Health programs and care for patients at Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Barbara White Fishman Women’s Health Center. I am a member of the attending staff of the Gynecology Service in the Department of Surgery and of the Department of Psychiatry.

My research interests have included sexual health, cancer-related infertility, and patients’ quality of life following surgery. I serve on the quality of life committee of the Gynecologic Oncology Group and am also a member of the other scientific and medical societies including American Psychological Association; American Association of Sex Counselors, Educators and Therapists (AASECT); and International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health (ISSWSH).


Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering work as teams, with specialists from all different areas. This allows us to consider all your needs together, and to give you the best possible care.
