About Us


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/consultations by video for adults and adolescents that provide recommendations for your ongoing care. I also offer ongoing outpatient treatment by video for adults and adolescents who live in the state of New York, Connecticut, or New Jersey and are in one of these states for most of the year. I provide treatment with medication and/or therapy.

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.
