She has become a go-to media expert on a variety of psychological issues. Her interviews can be found via ABC News, Newsday, Women’s Health & Fitness, Chicago Sun Times, The Associated Press, and affiliate radio station programs at CBS and NPR, just to name a few. She is a ShareCare Expert for Dr. Oz, writes for Psychology Today, helms the "Ask the Therapist" column for Esperanza Magazine and has worked as a technical advisor for the NBC television show, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
