Private Psychiatrist Treatment in Upper East Side, NY

Life can be difficult — most of us have felt stuck at one time or another. When life becomes difficult it can feel like we are stuck in a loop, reliving the same situations over and over again. However hopeless that cycle may feel, we can learn to break out of it. We can grow and change as we choose to make different choices.

If you’ve been feeling stuck, helpless, discontent, frustrated, or sad, I can help you work through those difficult feelings. I am an experienced private psychiatrist located in Upper East Side, NY, and I am passionate about helping my clients.
