I am a warm, empathic psychiatrist with board certification in child, adolescent and adult psychiatry.  I help clients in therapy by providing a safe environment to explore difficulties, capitalize on strengths, develop coping skills, aiming ultimately to create a life that is fulfilling and meaningful.

If you feel stuck, haunted by past traumas or unable to make progress toward your goals, I may be able to help.

As a cancer survivor, an immigrant and a single parent and having worked with survivors of domestic violence and in crisis intervention I offer broad, personal and professional experience and insights.  

I am skilled in insight oriented psychodynamic therapy, family therapy, play therapy, psychodrama and CBT. I prescribe medication when indicated.

Having taught and supervised medical students and residents in hospital settings, I am available for supervision and mentoring.

I have a practice on the Upper West Side and treat patients of all ages.
