I am Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University and a board-certified psychiatrist committed to offering comprehensive care for individuals, couples and families. I practice and value psychotherapy because it can be an enormously powerful tool to enhance personal growth, learning and self-discovery. Being a physician enables me to offer the option of medication when needed. This has the advantage of integrating both types of treatments with one provider only. If you are already in psychotherapy, I will work in coordination with your therapist to achieve the best result.

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.

Oppositional Defiance Psychiatrists
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These psychiatrists can help with oppositional defiance in Brooklyn or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Brooklyn, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Brooklyn.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Brooklyn 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 Brooklyn has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for Brooklyn child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Brooklyn). 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 (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

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