I treat a wide range of mental health issues including mood and anxiety disorders, though many people experience significant emotional symptoms that emanate from everyday occurrences such as difficulty in relationships or in professional environments.
I am a Columbia University-trained psychiatrist and psychotherapist who treats both men and women from a comprehensive, whole-body perspective, paying close attention to your overall physical and mental health. I am double board certified in both general adult psychiatry as well as psychosomatic medicine, a subspecialty that focuses on the interaction between physical illness and mental health. I believe that optimal mental health care is highly individualized and I will work with you to understand and treat biological as well as social, psychological and relationship factors that contribute to your wellbeing.

You may come to psychiatric treatment for innumerable reasons; loneliness or a disconnection in relationships, disabling anxiety, or a vague dissatisfaction with life. I believe that the treatment for these seemingly disparate problems is often a better understanding of yourself, how you look at the world and why you do the things you do. To this end the treatment I provide is based on joint discovery. Together we seek to better understand who you are, what you are looking for and what is getting in your way both within and without. We then explore how you could approach life differently, make changes and thereby feel better.

I am a psychiatrist who deeply believes in the importance of quality of life. Living with a healthy quality of life seems simple but is actually very challenging. Given the complex nature of romantic relationships, family/friend relationships, work stress, vocational aspirations, financial stress, life changes, and decision-making, just to name a few examples, difficult emotions seem natural. Such emotions can include anxiety, sadness, anger, regret, rage, loneliness, boredom, irritability, frustration, and disappointment. I am naturally an empathic person, and having studied, trained, and graduated from Harvard, Yale, and Cornell, I am a dedicated psychiatrist who desires to, and is trained to, help you.
