Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
I am a board-certified, Columbia University-trained psychiatric nurse practitioner (NP) specializing in psychotherapy, diagnosis, and medication management. My holistic approach combines personalized medicine - including the use of genetic testing for selecting the most effective medications - with my personal passion for listening deeply to your experience. By going beyond the symptoms that bring you into treatment, I will partner with you to help you achieve joy and fulfillment in your life.
People come to me who are struggling with anxiety, depression, insomnia, attention/concentration problems, substance use disorders, relationship difficulties, and body image concerns to achieve a happier and healthier mind, body and spirit. After a thorough evaluation, my recommendations may involve therapy, traditional psychiatric medications, alternative treatments (herbs/supplements, meditation, nutritional counseling, exercise, breathing techniques, sleep hygiene), or a combination of these interventions.
I spent the past several years working at NYU Student Health treating undergraduate and graduate students, which has developed my expertise of helping people successfully navigate stressful transitions. These challenging periods of transition present us with wonderful opportunities for growth.
