About

I am a Columbia-trained general and addiction psychiatrist and researcher. My practice focuses on delivering high-quality treatment to a small number of patients. I focus on complex substance use, co-morbid/dual diagnoses cases such as Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and depression, and behavioral addictions such as sex/gaming addiction. I conduct both talk therapy and use medications in my practice and work with both patients and their families. The goal is transformative change in behavior patterns to help patients achieve their highest level of functioning.
As a researcher, I conduct research at the interface of statistics, artificial intelligence and addiction science. My practice is therefore grounded in evidence-based medicine (EBM), applying the most up-to-date neuroscience and clinical research results. I provide office-based buprenorphine and depot injections (Vivitrol, Sublocade) and ketamine treatment.
My work has received awards including the APA/Eli Lilly Resident Research Award and the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry Early Career Award. I have published a number of research and popular articles on these topics. Armed with the latest scientific advances in this field, my practice builds a warm, supportive place to empower patients to recover.
