What You Can Expect
Your health and well-being are important. Therefore, appointments are promptly available.
I believe the therapeutic relationship is a collaborative process that begins with our first meeting. In this time, I will listen as you educate me about the unique aspects of your personality, life history, thoughts, awareness, and emotions that brought you to this point. I rely on a combination of evidence based medicine and understanding of who you are to determine a diagnosis and initiate the best treatment plan for you.
Not everyone requires psychopharmacology. Our rapport plays an instrumental role in the healing process. It is important for me to empathize with you as well as gain an appreciation of what you identify to be your difficulty. My respectful approach encourages a dialogue about my recommendations which are based on your symptoms and lifestyle.
Our appointments are based on humanity, compassion and science. I will summarize your diagnosis, treatment plan and objectives and explain possible side effects or drug interactions. Furthermore, I recognize the value of cultural diversity and similarities; differences in gender, race, age, sex, ethnicity, education, country of origin, and language.
My goal is to build a bond with you and be a valued member of your healing team. To empower your journey to optimum wellness, I will actively listen to you, ask insightful questions, and continue to assess your symptoms within a confidential nurturing environment.
I am a humanistic, compassionate board certified psychiatrist experienced in treating adults of all ages for anxiety disorders, depression, mood disorders, schizophrenia, OCD, PTSD, postpartum depression, and seasonal affective disorder (SAD). I believe the human connection is an essential part of the therapeutic plan. I offer a calm, nonjudgmental environment where individuals of all backgrounds and beliefs can relax and discuss their difficulties.
Born in Delhi, India, I received my medical degree and training from the Institute of Medicine in Kathmandu, Nepal. I was a South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation scholar (SAARC) and completed a psychiatric residency program at North Shore Long Island Jewish Hospital. An externship in psychiatry confirmed my interest in the field.
