I am uniquely qualified as a Board-Certified Psychiatrist with multiple credentials by the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Nutrition Coach, Women's Fitness Specialist, and Behavior Change Specialist alongside a PADI scuba certification as an Open Water Diver. I earned my medical degree from New York Medical College as valedictorian of my class and completed my adult psychiatric residency training at NYU School of Medicine/ Bellevue Hospital Center where I am currently a faculty member. I am also a Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and a Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
My practice focuses on young adults (20s through 40s) struggling with depression, anxiety, ADHD, relationship problems, body image/ eating issues, adjustment difficulties, loss, panic, OCD, sleep disorders, and the stressful challenges of academic and professional lives. With a warm, practical, and conversational approach to psychotherapy, I prescribe medications gently and only when necessary.
My qualifications by the National Academy of Sports Medicine, regarded as the world's leader in fitness certification, allow me to foster an action-oriented model to mental health integrating lifestyle-oriented verbal coaching on physical exercise, nutrition, sleep, yoga, and meditation for comprehensive care.
I also have a special interest in the emotional demands of higher education and have spent several years treating graduate and professional students on the Student Mental Health Service of Columbia University Medical Center.
