Profile
“We will create a holistic treatment plan together that may include a combination of psychotherapy, medication management, and lifestyle modifications, adapted to fit your individual needs.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Prior to becoming a Nurse Practitioner in Psychiatry, I worked at a media corporation in Manhattan. I left my corporate job to pursue a career that would allow me to be of service to others and went on to study psychiatric nursing at Columbia University. During and after my training, I worked in a variety of clinical settings, including a residential treatment facility, an inpatient psychiatric hospital, and a nonprofit community mental health clinic. My work has focused on performing psychiatric evaluations and providing treatment for children, adolescents, and adults with a range of psychiatric diagnoses. To help deepen and shape my treatment approach, I completed the preparatory program in psychoanalytic and dynamic psychotherapy at New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute in Manhattan.
What should someone know about working with you?
At our initial evaluation, I will gain an understanding of why you are seeking treatment at this time in your life. We will discuss your medical, psychiatric, and family history, and I will conduct a psychiatric evaluation to assess the current challenges and symptoms you are experiencing. In some cases, I will order lab work to rule out certain underlying conditions that may be contributing to your current symptoms. We will create a holistic treatment plan together that may include a combination of psychotherapy, medication management, and lifestyle modifications, adapted to fit your individual needs. If medication is part of your treatment plan, I will continually assess your response to prescribed medications and make adjustments if indicated. Through the therapy process, we will explore how your early experiences continue to influence your present symptoms, behaviors, and relationships so that you may make more conscious decisions, gain deeper insight, and create lasting change.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I regularly attend conferences at accredited institutions, including the American Society of Clinical Psychopharmacology and NYU’s Grossman School of Medicine, to stay up-to-date on integrating evidence-based treatments into clinical practice. I have a special interest in research related to mood disorders, reproductive psychiatry, OCD, anxiety disorders, trauma, stress-related disorders, and ADHD. I also frequently collaborate with and receive supervision from other providers in the field, including psychologists, nurse practitioners, social workers, and psychiatrists, in order to gain new perspectives and alternative treatment recommendations for my clients.
