Anxiety, depression, irritability, overwhelming stress, and obsessive worries can be debilitating and significantly limit your capacity to live life. These feelings lead to self doubt, relationship conflict, feelings of inadequacy, loneliness, uncertainty about direction in life, and potentially to substance use to lift depression or ease anxiety. My treatment philosophy draws from diverse experience and theoretical approaches. Treatment is individualized, collaborative, and aimed at understanding underlying conflicts, clarifying life goals, and making substantive behavioral change to enable you to live life in a more introspective, mindful way that leads to greater fulfillment.
I specialize in the treatment of substance dependence, anxiety, depression, bipolar, and relationship issues. I am licensed to prescribe Suboxone and have worked in community, hospital, and forensic settings, treating a range of people with a diverse scope of disorders. I bring experience, skill, and individualized care to my work.
I am a member of the NYU faculty and have trained at Yale, Columbia, and NYU. I am well-grounded in the psychotherapies and use of psychiatric medications, with license to treat opiate addiction with buprenorphine.
