Welcome To My Practice
Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist
I love the energy, honesty and humor of children and adolescents. During my 20-year career as a practicing Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, my goal has always been to establish trusting relationships with my patients that allow us to build treatment plans integrating their personal strengths and abilities. I opened my private practice in Huntington, NY in 2007, and through a comprehensive and collaborative approach, strive to understand how my patients fit within the larger context of family, school and community. I work closely with parents, therapists, pediatricians and schools – taking a team approach to improve the mental health of my patients.

What to expect.
My practice is a little different. If you’re looking to drop in for a 10-minute session, receive a prescription, and you’re on your way, this may not be the place for you. I value time. Time to get to know my patients. Time to understand who they are and the context in which they move within the world around them.
In addition to providing comprehensive psychiatric evaluations, psychotherapy, and
medication management, I also help patients with:
Resources for Families of Children with Special Needs
Information for parents, siblings and friends.
