I am a psychiatrist who deeply believes in the importance of quality of life. Living with a healthy quality of life seems simple but is actually very challenging. Given the complex nature of romantic relationships, family/friend relationships, work stress, vocational aspirations, financial stress, life changes, and decision-making, just to name a few examples, difficult emotions seem natural. Such emotions can include anxiety, sadness, anger, regret, rage, loneliness, boredom, irritability, frustration, and disappointment. I am naturally an empathic person, and having studied, trained, and graduated from Harvard, Yale, and Cornell, I am a dedicated psychiatrist who desires to, and is trained to, help you.
