I am a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, affiliated with Icahn School of Medicine and New York Psychoanalytic Institute. I treat people who feel stuck, either because of paralyzing anxiety, depression, or some other inexplicable emotional symptom. Others feel stuck in a particular way of relating to others, a specific view of themselves, compelling or distressing fantasies, or due to past traumatic experiences. I aim to provide individualized treatment to target a variety of difficulties in managing emotions, identity, and interpersonal functioning. When necessary, I also prescribe medication to optimize treatment.

I rely on additional expertise in trauma and dissociation, the neurobiology of personality, childhood development, psychoanalytic technique, and in evidence-based psychotherapies such as mentalization-based therapy, cognitive processing therapy for trauma, and transference-focused psychotherapy. Insight, curiosity, and new ways of relating can ultimately dream up relief from suffering.

I have worked extensively with individuals with history of various forms of trauma, or difficulties regulating intense emotions. I conduct treatment in Spanish or English. For some patients, I recommend more intensive treatment called psychoanalysis to provide deeper understanding, effect longer lasting change, and maximize creativity.
