Announcement icon I am meeting patients via FaceTime along with special office arrangements for complex cases. New consults and Med. management possible.
My expertise lies in treating addiction and alcohol abuse in high functioning Executives and Professionals. Many of my clients seek treatment because their substance use is threatening their success: they have much to lose, and want to regain control of their lives. Rather than classify patients as "addicts" and put them in a one-size-fits-all spiritual or CBT program, my practice philosophy is unique in the addiction field: A completely individualized, humanistic treatment approach. Each person is assessed to formulate a customized plan that can include medication assisted treatment (now considered a gold standard) and/or individual psychotherapy.
When someone has an addiction problem, they have usually started abusing substances in order to self medicate some underlying disorder. As an Addiction Psychiatrist, I specialize in both psychotherapy and medication management of Anxiety Disorders, Mood Disorders (Depression), ADHD, and OCD. I believe Psychotherapy is a cornerstone of treatment.
Addiction Psychiatry is a specialized field in which a medical doctor is uniquely trained to treat all facets of addiction/alcoholism. I am a Castle Connolly Top Doctor and Clinical Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at NYU Langone Health. See my website for information on my unique program for Executives.
