About

I am on the faculty of Harvard Medical School and Mclean Hospital, and I practice and teach Integrative Psychiatry and Ayurveda. I completed residency at Harvard’s MGH/McLean Psychiatry Training Program, receiving the Mel Kayce Award for Excellence in Psychotherapy. I attended the University of Miami School of Medicine, where I graduated with research distinction and was honored as the most distinguished graduate in psychiatry. I completed my Ayurvedic studies at the Kripalu School of Ayurveda.

I completed fellowships at The MGH Center for Psychoanalytic Studies and Harvard University Health Services. Following my training, I joined the clinical faculty at McLean Hospital as Psychiatrist-in-Charge of the Schizophrenia and Bipolar Program. I then served as an Ellenhorn PACT Team Psychiatrist and Chief Medical Officer over several years. And now I am thrilled to be in private practice and consulting.
