I am a Board-Certified Psychiatrist with additional qualifications by the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Certified Personal Trainer, Fitness Nutrition Specialist, Women's Fitness Specialist, and Behavior Change Specialist alongside a PADI certification as an Open Water Diver. I earned my M.D. from New York Medical College as valedictorian of my class and completed my psychiatric residency training at NYU School of Medicine/ Bellevue Hospital Center where I am currently a faculty member.
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, personable, and interactive approach to psychotherapy, I prescribe medications only when medically necessary.
My four certifications by the National Academy of Sports Medicine, regarded as one of the most respected Personal Training organizations in the country, allow me to foster an action-oriented model to mental health through exercise-related education and motivational support for those interested in adopting a healthier lifestyle. Dietary modification, self-care strategies, and stress-reduction techniques are also integrated for optimal wellness.
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.
I have been selected as a Top Psychiatrist in New York, NY by the International Association of Healthcare Professionals and have been entered into the "The Leading Physicians of the World" publication. I have also earned the 2013 Small Business Award for Doctors & Clinics and the 2015 Best Business of New York award in the category of Psychiatrists.
