About

I am a Harvard trained psychiatrist, with expertise in both psychotherapy and pharmacological treatment. I have been in private practice for almost 20 years, working extensively with women's mental health issues. I have helped my clients navigate emerging young adulthood, eating disorders, infertility, pregnancy and the postpartum period, and menopause. I am an integrative psychiatrist, that believes in exploring and treating the underlying physiological causes of mental illnesses, and combine nutraceuticals and complementary treatment with pharmacotherapy.
I provide diagnostic evaluations for mood, anxiety and eating disorders. I provide consultations for women struggling with reproductive and hormonal issues, and for people with chronic medical illnesses, including Lyme disease. I strive to empower my clients to understand the causes of their psychiatric illnesses and to play an active role in managing their treatment.
I apply an integrative approach to treatment, combining different psychotherapy modalities and pharmacology with complementary techniques, including the use of nutritional supplements and herbs. In practicing integrative psychiatry, I consider both the mental and the physical, the mind and the body, and examine the entire spectrum of variables impacting an individual's well being.
