I am a Psychopharmacologist in NYC and Fairfield, County, CT specializing in the medical management of depression, anxiety, panic, OCD, eating disorders and ADHD. As an Osteopathic physician, I embrace the belief that the body is an integrated dynamic unit of function where one system effects the other and incorporate this belief into treating patients. My special interest lies in raising awareness of the emerging mental health crisis on college campuses. I believe this is an especially challenging time for young people but the resources available to them while away from home are extremely limited.

Your story and your struggles are unique to you. Media and family often put expectations on us that do not align with what is best for our authentic self. Family conflict, anxiety, depression, substance use, and unhealthy relationships - with ourselves and others - can be the result of these pressures. There is no one size fits all for therapy and together we will work to understand you through different perspectives and modalities, including prescribing medication if indicated, always with the goal of helping you make changes that will stick and you feel good about.

We are living through some pretty extraordinary times. Sometimes it's hard to make sense of it all and keep putting one foot in front of the other. If you find you are struggling to experience the joy you once had, you aren't alone. Cultivating and maintaining healthy behaviors and relationships, managing unhelpful thoughts and keeping anxiety from running the show are all achievable. You don't have to white knuckle your way through this alone.
