Overwhelmed? Frustrated with people in your life? Trouble at school, work or home? Change can happen. I see adolescents, adults and couples. I'm direct, open, collaborative. My style is eclectic, practical and problem-solving. I prescribe anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications when indicated. Psychotherapy is a two-way street. It begins with a consultation, when together we clarify what's troubling you. During that first encounter, we road-test our compatibility as communicators and collaborators. In psycho-therapy, "one size" does not fit all. You should meet more than one clinician before deciding whom to work with.

I've worked in outpatient mental health clinics, on a mobile team performing community-based interventions, and as a specialty psychiatric provider within a primary care group practice. I have a wide range of experiences in providing pharmacological interventions to promote improved mental health, quality of life and general well-being. I take an approach that is collaborative in decision making for medication interventions, providing education, weighing risks and benefits, and considering each person's unique goals for wellness with respect and empathy. I'm inclined to be cognizant of social and cultural factors in approaching treatment and strive toward cultural competence in many forms.

I am a psychoanalyst with Buddhist and existential proclivities. Who are you ? Where is the meaning(s) in your life? Struggling with decisions? We all are. Life is wonderful. Life is too difficult. Joy and despair seem to elevate us and tear us down. . Can we go to pieces without falling apart? Harry Stack Sullivan, "The American Psychiatrist" who founded the Washington School of Psychiatry thinks we are all a collection of interpersonal relations. Psychotherapy is one of those unique relationships to explore and deepen your understanding of who you are. I love it!

I have trained at Cornell and Columbia and am Board Certified in both Psychiatry and Neurology. Having trained in both specialties, I believe that brain and mind are inseparable, therefore I frequently evaluate my patients with multiple modalities.I am interested in assessing each patient comprehensively using multiple perspectives, including cognition, behavior, life story and personality. My practice focuses on patients living with mood, cognitive and behavioral problems which are sometimes in the context of other neurological symptoms. I am dedicated to helping my patients with mood disorders, behavioral disorders, cognitive concerns, anxiety, ADHD and other disorders.
