Hello, I look forward to meeting you! I'm a double board-certified family and psychiatric nurse practitioner. My clinical experience has involved working with underserved patient populations, refugees, and undocumented migrant workers. I concurrently hold a faculty position at New York University, and my scholarly interests include impulsive behaviors, substance abuse, and the intersection of psychiatric problems with physical and mental well-being. I work with an amazing group of colleagues at Lavender, an online psychiatry and therapy office, where we believe psychiatric care shouldn't be expensive nor impossible to access.

Alzheimer's Psychiatrists
A progressive neurodegenerative disease, Alzheimers Disease slowly destroys an individual's memory, judgment, cognition and eventually ability to function. It represents an enormous burden on victims of the disease and their family alike.

Alzheimer's is characterized by memory loss, language deterioration, impaired ability to mentally manipulate visual information, poor judgment, confusion, restlessness, and mood swings.

Alzheimer's usually begins after age 65, but its onset may occur as early as age 40, appearing first as memory decline and, over several years, destroying cognition, personality, and ability to function. Confusion and restlessness may also occur. The early symptoms of AD, which include forgetfulness and loss of concentration, can be missed easily because they resemble signs of natural aging.
