I am a child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist currently practicing in Manhattan, New York. I am Board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and licensed to practice in the State of New York. I provide empathic and evidence based care using medications and psychotherapy to treat a wide variety of conditions such as ADHD, Anxiety, Mood and Eating Disorders. I believe that developing a strong therapeutic connection with all my clients is essential in providing excellent quality care.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Development from Cornell University. I earned my M.D. from the Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University, and completed a residency in Adult Psychiatry at the Beth Israel Medical Center, the University Hospital and Manhattan campus for the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. I then further specialized in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry completing a child psychiatry residency at the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine.
Drawing from my personal experience in competitive sports from a young age as well as my experience at the Eating Disorders Center at North Shore Long Island Jewish Health Center, I have developed a particular interest in working with adolescent and adult athletes with performance anxiety in competition as well as eating disorders.
