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.
