Research Summary

When I work with people, my goal is to assist them as they identify and meet personal goals. My practice concentrates on individual and couples’ psychotherapy, family psychoeducation, cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia, and psychopharmacology (including for attention deficit disorder).


In addition to having broad and deep clinical experience, I have expertise in managing systems of care for people with the full range of mental health challenges, having practiced in emergency departments, inpatient and outpatient environments, shelter-based therapeutic communities, housing programs, and street outreach. I have also brought these experiences to bear as a dedicated educator and mentor, as well as in research.


I am a clinical professor at NYU Grossman School of Medicine and also medical director of the EnTRy Program at NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn. Previously, I was chief of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health at NYC Health+Hospitals/Gouverneur, chief of outpatient and community psychiatry at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital, chief medical officer for mental hygiene services at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, and medical director of Project Renewal, Inc., a New York City nonprofit offering comprehensive care for disabled adults who experience homelessness.


My psychiatric training was at NYC Health+Hospitals/Bellevue, where I was also a chief resident, and subsequently completed the fellowship in public psychiatry at the New York State Psychiatric Institute at Columbia University. I have published, presented, and teach on issues in community mental health and the care of underserved populations, especially as they concern recovery orientation, advocacy, clinical engagement, psychiatric rehabilitation, and co-occurring substance misuse. I am a past president of the American Association for Community Psychiatry, a recipient of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Exemplary Psychiatrist Award, a Fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine, and a Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association.
