Dr. Lewis' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lewis "You deserve to live your best life, and I would like to help. I am an experienced, compassionate psychiatrist and psychotherapist serving the Brooklyn community. I utilize a balanced blend of psychotherapy, medication, and complementary approaches to help you find lasting solutions for both your mental health and your overall well-being. While I can assist with many concerns, I specialize in anxiety, depression, bipolar disorders, ADHD, trauma, life transitions, and relationship issues. I am experienced in treating children, adolescents, adults, and individuals of all sexual orientations. We'll take a collaborative approach to help you achieve your goals. Because everyone is unique, I tailor treatment to your specific needs and interests. We may incorporate psychotherapy, psychotropic medication management, and even breath and relaxation work. I also have extensive experience with eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, biofeedback, hypnosis, nutrition, and herbal remedies. For children and teenagers, I focus on talk therapy, family therapy, play therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, nutritional, educational, and lifestyle modifications, and biofeedback. You can count on an atmosphere of acceptance and full attention to your overall well-being. An essential element of treatment is helping you to identify and strengthen your own self-healing abilities and the innate drive towards an optimal lifestyle. We'll take a collaborative approach to help you achieve your goals for recovery and wellness."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lewis "We know that reaching out for help is hard and our goal is make it easier for you. The first step is the initial consultation and evaluation, which is an opportunity to gather information about your strengths, difficulties, and factors that might be contributing to your symptoms in order to come up with an accurate diagnosis that will then guide treatment. We offer expert care, up-to-date information, and treatment informed by research and experience, all in a comfortable and caring setting. We use an integrative approach incorporating both conventional and alternative approaches, depending on what best suits your needs. We work with psychotherapy and medications as well as mind-body treatments such as hypnosis and mindfulness, nutritional supplements, herbs, and dietary approaches. "
