I am an ABPN board-certified adult psychiatrist and addiction psychiatrist. I completed training at the University of Virginia and Columbia University. I hold positions as an Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Columbia and a Research Psychiatrist at the New York State Psychiatric Institute. I have broad experience ranging from inpatient state psychiatric hospital work to managing a large number of outpatient clients in various practice settings, with experience treating depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, ADHD/ADD, OCD, thought disorders, and addictions (including alcohol, opioids, stimulants, and cannabis).
I offer a variety of psychiatric medications and psychotherapies. I am a certified buprenorphine (Suboxone, Sublocade) and naltrexone (Vivitrol) provider, and am experienced in providing other FDA-approved and off-label medications for treatment of addictions. I also offer GeneSight genetic testing to tailor psychiatric medication treatment.
I believe in a client-centered and multi-modal approach to treatment. I strongly promote the use of medications for addictive disorders, in addition to psychotherapy and other psychosocial treatments. I am LGBTQ-affirming and sensitive to LGBTQ issues in psychiatric treatment.
