Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist


I am a board certified psychiatrist working at the Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, where I also have a private practice. I am a clinical researcher studying the neurobiology of mood and anxiety disorders with the goal of contributing to novel resilience promoting treatments for these conditions. In my private practice I work with patients struggling with anxiety and mood disorders, and a variety of different challenges including work stress and interpersonal conflict. My approach is holistic as I aim to integrate biological, psychological and social perspectives and I use pharmacological, nutritional and a psychotherapeutical treatments depending on each individual’s need.

We will work together to identify the goals you have for treatment and identify the most effective approach to help you achieve these goals, towards building a happy and productive life.

I can provide psychodynamic psychotherapy and I am also happy to partner with your psychologist or therapist to manage your medication.

Your treatment is private and confidential.


I earned my medical degree from the University of Pisa Medical School, in Pisa, Italy.  I worked in basic science research at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD, and during this time I obtained a PhD in the neurobiology of affective disorders. I then completed an adult psychiatric residency training at New York University Medical Center and Bellevue Hospital in New York City. I am a board certified psychiatrist and currently work as a psychiatrist with the Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City where I study the neurobiology of depression and anxiety disorders, and have a private practice at the Faculty Practice Associates at Mount Sinai. I am a trained in a variety of therapy techniques with a strong emphasis on psychodynamic psychotherapy.
