COVID-19 notice
  • UPDATE 

    As the Covid-19 virus embraces our city, the health and safety of patients continues to be my primary concern. This is a very stressful time for everyone. Being a therapist as well as a psychiatrist means I want to know what you are feeling and help you deal with any emotional conflict or turmoil you may be experiencing. I will do my best to help you in a kind and compassionate way.

    For our protection all sessions will be conducted via Telemedicine using Face Time or Zoom. In-office care is now unfortunately limited to patients on an individual basis after a Zoom/Face Time assessment.

    In this time of necessary isolation, it is very important to maintain personal connections. I urge you to call friends and loved ones regularly.

    Please reach out to me if you are struggling to cope with isolation. I will respond as quickly as I am able. For new patients please call 212-529-2733.
