Professional Statement

  • I am committed to working collaboratively with my patients to address emotional distress and difficulties in daily living. This could manifest as depression, anxiety, problems with intimacy or self-esteem, trouble staying focused or feeling connected, feeling excessively angry or guilty, or trouble finding meaning in life, to name only a few. I listen deeply, to understand not only who my patients are right now and what has brought them in, but also what has happened to them in the past and how that has affected the present.
  • In treatment with me, you will find a thoughtful, warm, and nonjudgmental atmosphere. I create effective, individualized treatment plans to best suit my patients needs including psychotherapy ("talk therapy"), medications (psychopharmacology), or both in combination. I use a holistic approach, treating the full person rather than just symptoms.
  • I am board-certified, Yale- and Columbia-trained, with experience and expertise across a wide range of issues. My office is in Union Square.
