If you're preoccupied with your appearance or body odor, have other unwanted thoughts or behaviors, or suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder or anxiety, I can help. These are my particular areas of expertise, but as a broadly trained and board-certified psychiatrist I also assess and treat a wide range of psychiatric/psychological conditions and emotional/behavioral problems.
I offer expert one-time evaluations for adults and adolescents that provide recommendations for your ongoing care, wherever you live.
I also offer evaluations that are followed by ongoing outpatient treatment for adults and adolescents who live in the New York City area.
These services are provided in a friendly and relaxed setting. Treatment with medication and/or therapy is integrated with mindfulness techniques as well as approaches to enhancing your day-to-day functioning and sense of well-being.
My approach is holistic, while providing encouragement and support. I will strive to help you function and feel as well as possible, and help free you to live a happier, more gratifying, and more fulfilling life.
I'm committed to partnering with you to get you on a pathway to healing.
