I also work with a lot of mothers and women considering motherhood and am sensitive to the unique challenges we women face.
I am an Ivy League Trained Psychiatrist with 20 years experience in Psychotherapy and Medication Management. My approach is positive, empowering and collaborative. I find that medications are often overused and am devoted to not recommending medications unless there is evidence they will help. Often it is more helpful to reconsider your outlook, improve your coping strategies and alter your behaviors. Rest assured that most of the problems in our field are treatable so there is ample reason to feel optimistic that help is on the way. Self pay sessions are $400.Call to see if accepting United Healthcare.

I am passionate about ADHD, anxiety, mania, delusional disorders and women’s psych.
I see clients for med evals & management, 2nd opinions and robust patient edu. My clients are wide-ranging: some are brand new to treatment; others have chronic mental illness, whether stable or during an acute episode; I accept pt's looking for a f/u provider after a psych hospitalization; I accept new-onset mental illness, whether due to substance use, an acute stressor or another factors. Some pts who anticipate difficult upcoming life-changes, like a pregnancy, job change, in-laws moving in, etc., may choose to see me prophylactically — often, some of these patients find quick relief just knowing there’s a plan in place.
