Insurances We Accept
I’m passionate about helping children and adolescents with sleep and mood disorders.

As a doctor, I believe in helping patients as much as I can with what they are struggling with.

I have more than 30 years of experience and practice in psychiatry, child psychiatry, child and adolescent psychiatry, and pediatrics.

I have authored or co-authored more than 60 articles, 14 book chapters and two books. I’ve been published in the areas of the diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents with bipolar disorders, sleep disorders and depression.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading and watching movies. I also train in Pilates and Krav Maga, a self-defense practice.
