Board Certifications


I am a psychiatrist who specializes in caring for people who are acutely or chronically ill, and who have concurrent psychiatric symptoms. Currently, I focus on helping people cope with the physical and emotional challenges of cancer. Patients can have unique psychiatric needs from diagnosis to treatment and with whatever lies ahead. These needs include: re-exacerbation of underlying psychiatric illness, adjusting to cancer diagnosis and treatment, depression, anxiety, symptoms associated with hormone therapy, fatigue, interpersonal conflict, confronting mortality, and other psychosocial distress.

I have a particular interest in Women’s Health and work in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I also supervise fellows, residents, and other trainees who rotate through the Psychiatry Service. Furthermore, I serve as a member and consultant of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Ethics Committee.

Currently, I focus on helping people cope with the physical and emotional challenges of cancer.
