I rely on additional expertise in trauma and dissociation, the neurobiology of personality, childhood development, psychoanalytic technique, and in evidence-based psychotherapies such as mentalization-based therapy, cognitive processing therapy for trauma, and transference-focused psychotherapy.
I am a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, affiliated with Icahn School of Medicine and New York Psychoanalytic Institute. I treat people who feel stuck, either because of paralyzing anxiety, depression, or some other inexplicable emotional symptom. Others feel stuck in a particular way of relating to others, a specific view of themselves, compelling or distressing fantasies, or due to past traumatic experiences. I aim to provide individualized treatment to target a variety of difficulties in managing emotions, identity, and interpersonal functioning. When necessary, I also prescribe medication to optimize treatment.

During my training, I specialized in women's mental health and early childhood trauma.
I am an adult, child, and adolescent psychiatrist working primarily through psychotherapy. I believe in psychotherapy because it is more effective than medication for most concerns, and because it can be a powerful, relationship-based experience that works to close past wounds. As a therapist, I try to always be open and compassionate as I listen and intervene.

My interests in working in psychiatry started very early. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at a young age. Living with a chronic condition has taught me about the intimate connection between mind and body and the power of one to influence the other. I am a board certified Child, Adolescent, and Adult Psychiatrist. In every stage of my training, I sought to deepen my understanding of this connection, and develop skills to help patients maintain a balance between the two.

A Psychiatrist in New York is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

New York 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 New York has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for New York child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in New York). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.
