Psychiatry

I am a board-certified psychiatrist with specialized training in treating people who are medically ill. I work with patients, couples, and their families, providing them with individually tailored interventions. I have a special interest in the impact of cancer on women and their mental health. Cancer can affect a woman’s life in ways that are specific to women, such as self-image, identity, fertility, hormonal and sexual dysfunction. It can also affect them in general ways, such as depression, anxiety, adjustment to life with disease, and survivorship.

My research activities will focus on developing interventions to improve psychosocial outcomes and quality of life in women with gynecologic cancers. I work very closely with women whose lives have been affected by cancer and serve as the psychiatric liaison to Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Gynecologic Oncology Disease Management Team. I am also an Instructor in the the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and have an integral role in the training of fellows, residents, and medical students.

I am currently a member of the American Medical Association, American Psychiatric Association, The Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine, and the International Association for Women’s Mental Health.
