I have had extensive training and experience in treating a multitude of issues, but primarily women's issues in context of depression, anxiety disorders (PTSD, OCD , panic attacks, social phobia).
I am unfortunately not accepting new patients at this time. I have been practicing psychiatry for almost 20 years. I treat women between the ages of 28 and 60 who often are going through one of life's "hot spots": the tricky late 20's-early 30's, challenges in fertility, the impossible balance of motherhood, marital struggles, midlife crises, menopause, and the aging process.

Currently offering a limited number of telemedicine appointments- now with offices in both Windsor and Greenwich.What if you had a professional in your corner that actually 'heard' your symptoms and did something about them in an unpretentious manner? What if you left the office feeling 'lighter'? I would be happy to help with that and more, particularly if you feel you have been misdiagnosed. Utilizing a holistic approach to help my patients feel heard, empowered, and ultimately work toward achieving their goals and seeing positive results through med management and alternative natural approaches. Let's get the results you deserve!

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Psychiatrists
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions). It affects children, kids, teens and adults. Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
