About

I have had a private medication management practice for 21 years in several locations; am currently licensed in Connecticut and New Jersey, but am able to do telehealth wherever you are located. My experience is in multiple settings: inpatient, outpatient, and crisis intervention. I have also served as a consultant to patients with mental health concerns in a neurology practice and in an HIV clinic. I have held faculty positions at several universities, and currently serve as an associate professor at UPENN's School of Nursing.
My speciality includes medication management, in combination with CBT and DBT, for the treatment of mood disorders, psychotic disorders, anxiety disorders, sleep disorders, and ADHD. I strive to help individuals from all backgrounds in a non-judgmental and compassionate manner to achieve the goal of symptom remission and overall health improvement.
With my nursing background, I use a holistic and individualized approach to address all psychosocial factors that may be contributing to your symptoms. I am confident I can provide the kind of care and treatment you are seeking. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to set up a free phone consultation.
