I am a Los Angeles based psychiatrist with an office on Beverly Boulevard near the border of West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. I went to medical school at Columbia University and completed a psychiatric residency at UCLA. I see adults on an individual basis and also for couples therapy. My work as a psychotherapist with individuals is based on an approach known as Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) which is described in detail on this website. When I see couples, I use an approach called Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). One of the developers of EFT is Sue Johnson whose book Hold me Tight is an excellent resource for couples seeking to understand how they can create a secure and loving connection. Research on EFT has demonstrated that it is highly effective in moving couples from distress to recovery. As a psychopharmacologist I prescribe medication for a range of psychiatric conditions including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, and adult attention deficit disorder.
