I work with clients who are looking to deepen their awareness of the way in which they move through the world. These clients generally report feeling "stuck" in their careers or personal lives. By working together in a non-judgemental and collaborative environment, you will continue to develop this awareness, therefore experiencing more meaningful interactions. Sometimes this is obtained through therapy, and sometimes it means discussing medication options for depression and/or anxiety. This can provide a huge relief and make space for great work to happen.

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.
