My Experience

I am a Connecticut-based child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist with over thirty years of experience in the diagnosis and treatment of mental health disorders. Following medical school at the University of Liege, Belgium, I completed my residency in Psychiatry and fellowship in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. I served as Chief Resident during my last year of fellowship, and am Board Certified in Psychiatry (1989) and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry (1991). During the fellowship and beyond, I received training in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders that often present in childhood, such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorders, other behavior disorders, complex mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and other conditions that may surface during development. I have worked in the continuum of psychiatric care for children and adolescents, including in-patient child and adolescent psychiatry units, partial hospital programs, residential treatment centers, group homes, clinical day school settings, outpatient clinics, outpatient private practice, and have completed thousands of psychiatric evaluations for various school systems. I have provided psychiatric care for many adults as well, including some patients from early childhood into adulthood.
