I have extensive experience treating a wide range of conditions and helping with relationship, work, and body-image issues.
I'm a board-certified psychiatrist who provides medication management and psychotherapy to adults. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety and mood disorders. We can work together to address the stress, fear, depression, and everyday challenges that affect your ability to live your happiest life. I also provide Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which works in the "here and now" to address your thought processes and behaviors, and get you feeling better right away. I know seeing a psychiatrist can be daunting and strive to make it a comfortable experience. I've been very helpful to those who have never met with a professional before.

Relationship Issues Psychiatrists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Brooklyn relationship psychiatrist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling 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. 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 Brooklyn, 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. Brooklyn Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
