Welcome to my New York City practice
If you're preoccupied with your appearance or body odor, or if you suffer from
obsessions, compulsive behaviors, depression, or anxiety, I can help. I have
expertise in body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), olfactory reference syndrome
(ORS), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), skin picking, anxiety disorders,
and other mental health conditions.
I offer expert one-time evaluations/consultations for adults and adolescents
that provide recommendations for your ongoing care; I provide
evaluations/consultations only by secure video (via computer or smartphone)
for people who can be in the state of New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut at
the time of the evaluation. I also offer outpatient treatment by video for
adults and adolescents who live in the state of New York.
I offer treatment with medication and/or therapy to enhance 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
I'm committed to partnering with you to get you on a pathway to healing.

dysmorphic disorder and other mental health issues. I frequently write and
publish scientific papers and other articles, do presentations for
professionals and the public, and do media interviews. To see my recent blog
