Professional Statement

  • I am a psychiatrist and an addiction specialist proudly serving patients in New York City.
  • I attended Georgetown University Medical School in Washington, DC, and am Board Certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, as well as the American Board of Addiction Medicine.
  • Patients come for a variety of reasons including issues with mood and depression, anxiety or panic, substance use, attention and concentration problems, eating disorders, relationship problems - to name a few, and perhaps a combination of those issues exists.
  • I appreciate that one needs to hear about treatment options outside of medications. If medications are agreed upon as part of a treatment approach, then they may be an anti-anxiety medication, a sleep aid, an anti-depressant, or medication for concentration/focus, or medications shown to be helpful in problematic substance use or impulse control issues: such as problematic opiate, alcohol, or nicotine use, or compulsive behaviors (i.e. gambling or sexual impulses, etc).
  • The psychotherapy that I provide is informed by many modalites such as psycho-dynamic, cognitive behavioral, DBT, and supportive therapy.
  • Lastly, I will also gladly refer patients to colleagues should their expertise be useful.
