Specialty/Research Focus

Child and Adolescent Psychiatry; Psychiatry

 
Professional Summary:

As a child and adolescent psychiatrist, I provide psychiatric care for children and adolescents as developing individuals and as members of a family, community and culture. I believe strongly in the adage “there is no health without mental health” and have committed my career to bettering the lives of children and adolescents in Western New York. Understanding the child comprehensively and addressing treatment broadly is fundamental to my approach. While medication management is an important part of what I do, I prescribe and manage medication within the context of the psychosocial needs of the child. As a result, I often address my patients’ needs by providing psychotherapy, family guidance and consultation about other fundamental aspects of the child’s life, particularly school.

In 2010, I led a team of five university-based child psychiatry programs to secure a major grant from the New York State Office of Mental Health, to provide education and consultation to primary care physicians across the state of New York. I am now the medical director for the national model program made possible by this collaboration, the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry for Primary Care (CAP PC) program--the second largest in the nation of the 24 programs of its type. As such, I devote significant time collaborating with primary care physicians to increase their skills in assessing and managing pediatric mental health problems. The unique collaboration within the CAP PC network includes the original five university divisions of child and adolescent psychiatry and provides education and consultation support to primary care providers statewide. The goal of the program is to meet the public health need for greater access to mental health care via primary care. I am currently involved in research on the impact of CAP PC and receive grant support from the New York State Office of Mental Health.

I serve as the vice chair for academic affairs in the Department of Psychiatry. In this role, I am closely involved in the educational programs of the department and in recruiting and developing our faculty. I teach and supervise residents and medical students in outpatient settings and provide lectures to these trainees as well. In addition, I mentor residents and early career faculty, and I often write journal articles and chapters with them. My areas of academic interest include psychiatric education, psychotherapy and collaboration with primary care.
