I am a board-certified psychiatrist, specializing in the treatment of mood, anxiety, attention, and eating disorders in adults. I take a patient-centered approach to treatment, offering psychopharmacology and an array of specialized psychotherapeutic techniques. My goal is primarily to work with individuals to develop treatment plans that are comfortable and effective over the long term. I often work closely with other clinicians as well, to provide a team-based approach to treatment.
While in training and on faculty at Mount Sinai Hospital, I utilized cutting edge techniques for the treatment of mood and anxiety disorders, and am well versed in the full spectrum of psychiatric disorders. I have also specialized in Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
I apply individualized approaches to treatment, which may include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Mindfulness, and medications (if warranted). I am primarily attuned to clients' personal goals, and focus on stress management and motivational approaches to attain lifestyle improvement.
In addition to my private practice, I currently serve as an assistant professor of psychiatry at Mount Sinai, where I completed my residency training. I have done additional training in psychodynamic psychotherapy at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute. I obtained my medical degree from the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, and my undergraduate degree from Cornell University, College of Arts and Sciences.
