Professional Experience

You may have read my prolific posts on The Huffington Post, Psychology Today, and on The Friendship Blog as "The Friendship Doctor." I primarily write about health, mental health, relationships and travel---and am especially skilled at giving practical and sound advice. I have a doctorate in psychology and hold an appointment as a professor of psychiatry at the New York University School of Medicine. I'm an author, speaker, corporate spokesperson who is very adept at attracting media coverage.
