Introduction

As a psychiatrist located in midtown Manhattan, I help people with problems affecting their mood, self-esteem, and concentration. I treat patients undergoing significant life changes and experiencing difficulties with work and relationships. I have a special focus in the treatment of substance abuse and am a licensed prescriber of buprenorphine. I create a treatment tailored to the particular needs of my patients that respects their privacy. I enjoy working in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis and believe that meeting frequently can provide optimum results. In certain cases, I also prescribe medication. My training draws on different sources, but I use a predominantly psychodynamic approach with patients to help them learn more about themselves, and to understand and resolve their conflicts.
