Director, Shimiaie Associates
Board Certified Psychiatrist, ABPN
Assistant Clinical Professor, The Mount Sinai Hospital
Currently licensed to practice in New York and New Jersey
I am a psychiatrist in practicing in New York City specialized in the treatment of adults 18 years and older using a combination of individual psychotherapy, group psychotherapy and psychopharmacology.
I am trained and experienced in treating a wide range of conditions including anxiety disorders, mood disorders, ADHD, insomnia, psychosis and beyond. I am passionate about and have a particular focus in working with patients who have experienced early life trauma, dissociative disorders and LGBTQ focused mental health. My prior training in internal medicine helps me take a comprehensive and holistic approach to treatment, recognizing that physical and mental health are interconnected.
I take a personalized and patient centered approach. The aim is to work on your goals at your pace. I bring attention to emotions, identity and interpersonal process to help increase self awareness and self efficacy in day to day life.
I completed residency training in Psychiatry at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York where I remain on faculty as an assistant clinical professor consulting in the emergency room and inpatient settings. I was formerly the medical director of the Partial Hospital Program.
Prior to training in Psychiatry, I completed residency in Internal Medicine at the Mount Sinai Hospital. I graduated medical school at Tel Aviv University where I researched and published in the fields of Cardiology and Urology. I completed my undergraduate education at Emory University with a major in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology and spent time researching the neurological basis of memory formation.
