New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. I am a Board-Certified Psychiatrist and a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO). I address conditions from both a Lifestyle AND Medical perspective compared to most physicians who focus often on solely a medical perspective. I have experience treating ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar, Trauma, Personality Disorders, Obsessions & Compulsions, Insomnia, Psychosis, and more.
I combine my decades of experience in academic psychiatry and my extensive knowledge of psychotherapeutic methods and psychopharmacology with empathy, focused listening and a caring responsiveness to provide personalized care to the patients in my practice at Pegasus Psychiatry Associates. I was Chair and Medical Director of the Dept. of Psychiatry at Morristown Medical Center (NJ's #1 rated hospital) for 21 years and am a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Thomas Jefferson University's Medical School. I am widely published, have national recognition for my research and have served on state-wide mental health committees.
I am a board certified Adult and Adolescent Psychiatrist with over 25 years experience in treating patients suffering from Eating Disorders (Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating), Mood Disorders (Depression, Bipolar Disorder), Anxiety Disorders (Panic, Social Anxiety, OCD, PTSD, Phobias), Adjustment Disorders, Sleep Disorders, and Personality Disorders. Through a combination of individual psychotherapy and medication management, if necessary, I work with patients to improve the quality of their lives and realize their goals.
Your ability to recognize your difficulties, and decision to reach out for help are good signs towards a readiness to engage in therapy. My practice addresses the spectrum of mental health, across ages and types of interventions; I am best suited to provide dynamic psychotherapies, with or without medications, and am rewarded to work with adults as well as adolescents and children, although my practice is mainly with adults. I have recently started an art group therapy aimed to teen girls, about which you can read more in the designated section.
I am a psychiatrist with over 30 years experience in private practice, board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. I work with patients with depression, anxiety, panic, substance abuse, ADD, OCD, bipolar disorder, marital and relationship issues as well as most other problems for which people seek professional help.
