Welcome,

…. and thank you for considering me.

You are facing some difficult issues right now, and unfortunately finding a good psychiatrist to work with you is not easy in the best of times. I hope the information here will help.

My office is conveniently located in downtown Manhattan, where for over seven years I’ve offered caring, professional, evaluation and treatment for a wide variety of mental health issues, using psychotherapy and medication. Although some of my patients do their best with an ongoing relationship, many of my patients feel better relatively quickly. And since I encourage independence, people get back to their lives with perhaps an occasional check-in, and I get back to looking for new patients!

As a psychiatrist I have had extensive training in pharmacologic (medicine) interventions for helping people feel better quickly. As a therapist, I try to help people build a better relationship with themselves and the world around them. Sometimes these approaches are in conflict, which makes my work interesting. 🙂

In addition to extensive medical (Family Practice and Psychiatry) and psychological (Psychodynamic and Jungian Analytic) training, I bring my experience and knowledge as a former stockbroker, financial analyst (CFA), computer programmer, social worker (Early Intervention: Birth to Three), and outreach worker (Drugs and Alcohol, HIV/AIDS) to my empathic work with patients.

I hope I’m the right psychiatrist for you. If you have any questions, or are ready to schedule a personal, thorough, confidential evaluation, call me.
