I am a board-certified, Cornell and Mount Sinai-trained adult and child psychiatrist in New York and California. My approach to treatment is holistic and firmly rooted in the science of the brain, combining psychotherapy (for individuals, families, and couples) with nutrition, lifestyle modification, as well as state-of-the-art medication treatment, when helpful. I view each person as a complex individual with a unique story to tell, so I take time getting to know my clients and work collaboratively to develop a targeted plan to achieve their treatment goals.

My practice as a psychiatrist and psychotherapist is influenced by an appreciation of the unique biological, psychological and social aspects that contribute to emotional well being and/or suffering of an individual person. Biological treatments like medications can be part of a solution but must be used rationally and carefully and are rarely "cures." Insight into the psychology of the individual, especially unexpressed thoughts, feelings and behaviors can be invaluable, even if hard won in psychotherapy. Attending to one's social environment in concert with the above areas is the final part of effective treatment.

I want my patients to know that their concerns are my priority. I care deeply about mental health and take very seriously the trust my patients have in me. You can count on me to be present, focused, and solution oriented during our visits. It's important to me that my patients know I'm a regular person-just like them, and my goal is to use the skills I've learned through my experience in treating mental health conditions.

I am both an adult and child trained psychiatrist, with specialized training in children and adolescents due to my passion for this age group. Our generation of youth has been faced with unimaginable stressors over the last decade and as a result has had some struggles in dealing with some of these challenges. My approach is to utilize my strong foundation in child development and then take the time to understand the unique nature of your child, appreciating their strengths and identifying the areas that have lead to their distress, in order to help them overcome this challenging time.
