I am a general adult psychiatrist, completing residency training and forensic fellowship at Yale where I also had the amazing experience of serving as chief resident. My experience includes pharmacotherapy with emphasis on treatment for general mood disorders, post-partum depression, anxiety, insomnia, postraumatic stress disorder, ADHD, and maintaining sobriety/post-substance abuse, in addition to a range of clinical issues with more specific psychiatric foci. I also offer psychotherapy for patients who wish to engage solely in psychotherapy or a combination of therapy and medication management [private rates apply].
