About

Struggling with medical problems (or the medical system!) can cause depression and anxiety, which can make it even harder for your body to recover. I specialize in treating disorders related to the mind-body connection and have a great deal of experience with patients suffering from serious medical illness, such as cancer, organ transplantation, heart disease and diabetes, neurological disorders like MS and seizures, autoimmune diseases, and thyroid and other hormone disorders. My preference is to work in a team, not only with my patients and their families, but also with other physicians and therapists.
Patients can be sure of a thoughtful, balanced approach to their care, with information about both the benefits and limitations of medication and therapy. I believe each patient is unique and I try to offer options. I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, motivational interviewing, and psychodynamic techniques.
Currently, I am an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Georgetown University and work on committees dedicated to physician wellness, which is another area of special interest. Completed fellowship and residency at NYU/Bellevue.
