About Me

My father was a general surgeon, and I was always very interested in his work. While participating in an elective in cardiothoracic surgery as a medical student, I interacted with many people who were facing life-threatening illnesses. This stimulated my interest in psychiatry, and specifically in traumatic stress.

My research has led to breakthroughs in our understanding of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) through the study of police officers, soldiers in combat, veterans, and civilians who have been exposed to sudden, usually life-threatening events. By mapping out circuits of the brain, researchers in our Department of Psychiatry are also making advances in how we diagnose, treat, and prevent conditions like schizophrenia, addiction, depression, dementia, and traumatic brain injury.

At NYU Langone, we not only have expertise in treating mental health conditions, but our clinicians also have compassion and a commitment to patients that go far beyond simply providing quality care. I take the time to listen to what my patients are feeling. From so many years of supporting people dealing with mental illness, I understand and empathize with the pain they’re going through. I am deeply committed to developing a trusting relationship to help patients recover their sense of effectiveness and hope for the future.
