Overview of Practice

I practice general psychiatry and addiction psychiatry using talk therapy (see talk therapy section), medication management and holistic modalities such as meditation and complementary medicines (see mindfulness & meditation section). This is my private practice in Midtown Manhattan. I am also the medical director of addiction services at St. Josephs Hospital where I started a suboxone and vivitrol program. 

Here you receive a well rounded understanding of your issues. You can also review the treatment you have received in the past to see if you were over medicated or incorrectly medicated or whether something was missed. I do have medication management sessions only, but I also am a believer of talk therapy/psychotherapy in that there is an emotional origin to these issues. Our initial session (75 minutes) allows us the time to talk about what's happening now as well as certain issues in the past. We tie in issues at work, relationship and with family and its impact on your life. The follow up (45-50 min session) allows for a deep conversation where we dive into medication management, psychotherapy and meditation practices. Shorter sessions (30 minute and 15 minute) are available as well. Addiction treatment, Family and Couples therapy are included (at your discretion) when it applies to your specific treatment plan.
