.. and thank you for considering me.
Finding the right psychiatrist can be very stressful in itself, on top of all the other issues you are facing. I hope the information here will help you make a more comfortable, informed decision.
Conveniently located in Downtown Manhattan for over seven years, I offer caring, professional, evaluation and treatment of a wide variety of mental health issues using psychotherapy, and medication where indicated. Although some patients (and issues) do best with a long term therapeutic relationship, many of my patients feel better relatively quickly, and since I encourage independence, I am generally always looking for new patients!
As a psychiatrist I have extensive training in pharmacologic (medicine) interventions for helping people feel better quickly. As a therapist, I can 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 my 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 (D&A, HIV/AIDS) to my empathic work with patients.
After browsing my site I hope you come to the conclusion I am the right psychiatrist for you. If you have any questions, or are ready to schedule a personal and completely confidential evaluation, call me.
