Professional Statement

  • I am a Board-Certified Psychiatrist, NASM-Certified Personal Trainer, and NASM-Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist who earned my M.D. from New York Medical College as valedictorian of my class and completed my psychiatric residency training at NYU School of Medicine/ Bellevue Hospital Center.
  • I have been selected as a Top Psychiatrist in New York, NY by the International Association of Healthcare Professionals and have been entered into the 2013 edition of "The Leading Physicians of the World" publication. I have also earned the 2013 New York Small Business Award for Doctors & Clinics.
  • My practice focuses on young adults (20s through 40s) struggling with depression, anxiety, ADHD, relationship problems, body image/eating issues, adjustment difficulties, loss, insomnia, stress management, and the rigors of academic and professional life.
  • With a warm and personable approach to psychotherapy, I prescribe medications only when necessary. As a Certified Personal Trainer & Fitness Nutrition Specialist by the National Academy of Sports Medicine, I foster an action-oriented model to mental health through exercise-related education and motivational support for those interested in adopting a healthier lifestyle. Dietary modification, self-care, and stress-reduction techniques may also be integrated for optimal wellness.

  • As an out-of-network provider, I do not participate directly with insurance. The full payment is due at the time of service, but patients may submit receipts to insurance for partial reimbursement of out-of-network benefits.
