I graduated from Mount Sinai School of Medicine in 1998 as part of the Humanities and Medicine program, completed my psychiatry training at Harvard Longwood in Boston,  and then did specialty training in child/adolescent psychiatry at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College. 

Following my graduation from child fellowship, I stayed on as full time faculty at Weill Cornell and worked at the Westchester Division of New York Presbyterian Hospital. I was an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and held various clinical positions including Medical Director of a children's day hospital program and Assistant Director of the Child Psychiatry Residency Training Program of Cornell and Columbia.

In 2008, I left the full time faculty at Cornell to start a private practice in Harrison, New York and remained on the voluntary faculty, continuing to teach and supervise child psychiatry trainees until 2015.  I have also provided consultation services in child psychiatry at Four Winds Hospital in Katonah, New York.

A native of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, I currently live in Westchester with my husband, daughter, and mini golden doodle, Fenway.
