Professional Statement

  • I went to medical school at Case Western Reserve University, studied cultural psychiatry and medical anthropology at Harvard University, and trained at Yale University. Along with my private practice, I conduct research at Columbia University. I treat many common problems, including:
  • depression
  • bipolar disorders
  • anxiety (panic attacks, performance anxiety, test anxiety)
  • insomnia
  • attention deficit-hyperactivity
  • psychosis
  • trauma
  • perinatal and post-partum depression and anxiety
  • addiction (*recovering patients only)
  • Many patients have problems with work, relationships, and identity that may not fit diagnostic categories. These include:
  • work stress and frustration
  • work-life imbalance (especially among bankers, traders, and managers)
  • low self esteem
  • difficulty adjusting to chronic medical conditions
  • setting expectations for new parents
  • transitions to retirement
  • end of life conflicts
  • problems with acculturation for immigrants
  • LGBT concerns (identity, coming out)
  • I have been fortunate to receive several distinctions throughout my career. I have been awarded prestigious fellowships and grants for my research from:
  • the National Institute of Mental Health
  • the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration of the Department of Health and Human Services,
  • the American Psychiatric Association,
  • the New York State Office of Mental Health,
