I treat a wide spectrum of psychiatric conditions including mood and anxiety disorders (e.g., bipolar disorder, panic disorder), adult attention-deficit disorder, personality disorders (e.g., borderline personality disorder), cognitive and memory problems (e.g., Alzheimer's disease), and persistent psychotic illnesses such as schizophrenia. I have extensive experience treating the lasting effects of traumatic experiences and helping individuals overcome grief.

I am an attending psychiatrist at Columbia with 2 private practice locations (Upper West Side and near Columbus Circle), and enjoy treating adults, adolescents, and children with a wide range of psychiatric problems including, but not limited to; anxiety, substance abuse, psychosis, ADHD, and personality disorders.
A great psychiatrist needs to combine clinical and scientific expertise with empathy and curiosity about people and their troubles. Throughout my career, I have been fascinated with how each of us develop our unique personal style of coping with a life that will inevitably bring problems in love, work, and the death of our loved ones and ultimately ourselves. If you or your loved one suffers from problems with mood, anxiety, attention, or seems stuck in a pattern of maladaptive behavior, I will work with you to identify the cause and find a solution.

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.
