My Background

As a psychiatrist in the New York area for 10 years, I’ve developed a down-to-earth and practical approach to guiding adults and young adults through their problems. My extensive background in psychotherapy, psychiatric medicine, and academic study gives me the tools to explore all the factors that may be contributing to your symptoms, whether they be medical, social, interpersonal, developmental or work-related. 

As the former Director of Bellevue Hospital’s Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program, I have learned to quickly uncover and synthesize the aspects of patients’ histories that led them to this critical point. A clinical assistant professor at NYU School of Medicine since 2010, I have a foundation rooted in academics coupled with a personal, down-to-earth touch cultivated by years of working sidebyside with my patients.  

I earned a medical degree from State University of New York Downstate Medical Center College of Medicine followed by a Residency in Adult Psychiatry from the NYU School of Medicine. Before medical school, I studied at Bryn Mawr College for pre-med coursework, and hold a bachelors degree from Cornell University. My research and writing has been featured in several academic publications.
