About

I am board certified in adult psychiatry and I work with clients to attain mental wellness in all areas of ones life. My practice is collaborative and integrates psychopharmacology with my interest/training in nutrition, mindfulness, yoga, exercise, and mindbody therapies. My areas of expertise are in treating anxiety, depression, insomnia, trauma. I search for the underlying physiologic causes that can contribute to your symptoms or challenges. Supplements, vitamins, and herbs may be recommended along with or instead of medicine. Genetic testing is offered to individualize treatment. Women’s health is another area of expertise.
I have 20 years of expertise in women's mental and reproductive health, including PMS, pregnancy, postpartum, perimenopause/menopause. The intersection of emotional/mental symptoms and hormonal imbalances (thyroid, adrenal, estrogen/progesterone) is a particular interest. I identify and treat nutrient deficiencies along with or instead of medication.
I completed my psychiatric training at New York University/ Bellevue Medical Center where I was Chief Resident, followed by a fellowship at Columbia University. I have completed a fellowship in integrative mental health, learning and integrating new research and treatments. There is much that is new and I bring this energy and enthusiasm to my work.
