I am a general adult psychiatrist, having completed my four year residency training and one year forensic fellowship at Yale. I was very involved during my residency with teaching and research, having had the amazing experience of serving as program chief resident, and I continue to maintain an academic affiliation with Yale and the psychiatric community in New Haven, Connecticut. I have had specialty training in addiction medicine, dual diagnosis patient populations, and geriatric psychiatry. I have treated patients ranging in age from adolescence to geriatric, and my experience includes pharmacotherapy with emphasis on treatment for general mood disorders, post-partum depression, anxiety, insomnia, posttraumatic stress disorder, attention deficit disorders, psychotic disorders, and substance abuse, in addition to a range of clinical issues with more specific psychiatric foci. I also offer psychotherapy for patients who wish to engage solely in psychotherapy or a combination of therapy and medication management.
My goal is to form collaborative and reciprocal relationships with patients, such that I can meet their mental health needs in a medical capacity and also empower them to lead more fulfilling, healthy, and rewarding lifestyles. I am excited to be able to offer patients a range of private treatment options, including traditional pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy, with potential exploration of alternative therapies and spiritual counseling in the setting of a telepsychiatry practice.
