Depression and Stress

Great to meet you!

I am a psychiatrist in New York, NY who works with adults and provides care for patients who struggle with anxiety, depression, and psychosis. I specialize in patients who have felt out of control or have difficulties in their experiences or perceptions of things around them.

A bit about my approach to therapy

I believe that symptoms have a story behind them and aim to help my patients understand their thoughts and feelings. Even if our focus will be medication management, I want to understand how medication fits in with your personal narrative, history, or family history. From there, my focus will be to help you recognize and manage symptoms and improve coping and relationships.

What you can expect from our first session

I begin all new intakes by taking a comprehensive history. This may feel a bit overwhelming, but will help me determine a preliminary diagnosis and identify some possible avenues for further inquiry and intervention. My patients often say that sessions with me are a space where they can be curious about their experiences without judgment, from which they come away thinking about their problem from a new perspective.
