Let's Connect (845) 393-9121
Greetings! My private practice is here for children, teenagers, young adults, adults, and families who are looking for not only a psychiatrist, but a therapist, an advocate, a humanist, and above all else a listener. I am here to learn and understand your story and to collaborate with you on a treatment plan that will help address any symptoms of mental health challenges that you or your child are experiencing. I am board certified in child and adolescent psychiatry as well adult psychiatry and have 11 years of experience with seeing patients in multiple treatment settings as well as teaching students, residents, and fellows.
Throughout my career, I have held multiple roles including deputy training director of the Einstein/Montefiore fellowship in child/adolescent psychiatry and as director of the consultation service at the Children's Hospital at Montefiore. I have expertise in the areas of ADHD, anxiety, autism spectrum disorders, and somatic symptom disorders.
I look forward to working with you on a treatment plan that includes pharmacologic and therapeutic interventions. I am happy to collaborate with psychotherapists and primary care clinicians so that your care can be truly integrated and comprehensive. Please reach out to have a complimentary 15 minute phone call to see if my practice is a good fit for you!
