I am specialized in both General and Addiction Psychiatry and trained to provide psychotherapy to enhance motivation to quit and prevent relapse.
My goal in practice is to work together with each patient to develop a customized plan that will address their needs. I am a strong believer in psychotherapy and have experience in individual, group, couple and family therapy. However, when therapy has not provided adequate relief, medication management is always available. I will collaborate with patients to find the best treatment. I am also on faculty at Columbia University/ NYSPI and actively involved in research (specific areas include opioid dependence, pain and complicated grief). This experience allows me to integrate up to date treatment in my practice.

My expertise lies in treating addiction and alcohol abuse in high functioning Executives and Professionals. Many of my clients seek treatment because their substance use is threatening their success: they have much to lose, and want to regain control of their lives. Rather than classify patients as "addicts" and put them in a one-size-fits-all spiritual or CBT program, my practice philosophy is unique in the addiction field: A completely individualized, humanistic treatment approach. Each person is assessed to formulate a customized plan that can include medication assisted treatment (now considered a gold standard) and/or individual psychotherapy.

I am an Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Columbia University. I specialize in the treatment of mood, anxiety, and ADHD disorders --particularly when associated with compulsive behaviors such as drug, alcohol or sex addiction . While I use diagnosis as a guidepost for evidenced-based recommendations, I believe strongly that diagnosis should not define you, or the work that we do together. I want to understand you as a person, your values, and your goals, so that we can develop an treatment that helps you to go beyond symptom management, to obtain your optimal sense of well-being and performance.

I am a psychiatric nurse practitioner with nearly 20 years of experience in general and addiction psychiatry. Most of my clinical expertise was developed in NYC where I have treated children, adolescents, and adults with an extremely wide array of problems. Authenticity and non-judgment drive my practice. I sincerely believe that people change at different paces and that is part of being human. In fact, motivation to change is often external--meaning that something outside of drives us toward psychotherapy, medications, and other forms of treatment.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in New York is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

New York Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in New York has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub-specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in New York, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. New York Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
