About

Making the decision to pursue psychiatric treatment requires courage and motivation. As your psychiatrist, I honor your willingness to be vulnerable with me by being transparent with you throughout our work together. My clinical approach balances directness with empathy, shared expectation with flexibility, and professionalism with humor and warmth. I provide psychiatric evaluations, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and medication management to children, adolescents, and adults. I am passionate about caring for LGBTQIA+ people, and I have been researching and teaching about queer issues in health care for the past 10 years.
I earned my MD from the Mayo Clinic and graduated from Yale for psychiatry residency. I completed advanced fellowship training in transgender psychiatry at Mount Sinai and in child and adolescent psychiatry at Montefiore/Albert Einstein. My primary clinical expertise and interest is in working with transgender and gender diverse youth and their families.
I am certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and I am licensed to practice medicine in MA, NY, NJ, CT, and KY. I am only seeing patients remotely at this time. Please send me a message if you'd like to schedule a time for a free 15-minute consultation phone call.
