Dan is a board-certified psychiatrist in private practice in New York City.
Dan completed his residency at MGH/McLean in Boston, where he received the Hackett Award for academic research. He subsequently completed a public psychiatry fellowship at Bellevue Hospital.
As a former English literature major who gravitates toward subjectivist and hermeneutical understandings of the mind, Dan is a “throwback” to the days when psychiatrists were versed in psychotherapeutic theory and methods, in addition to psychopharmacology. Upon discovering and training in ketamine-assisted psychotherapy since last year, Dan has been most thrilled to work with a medicine that can facilitate and enhance the psychotherapy process.
Dan recently opened a group psychiatry practice in the city called Acheron, where he trains therapists and treats patients using conventional and psychedelic psychiatry methods.
Dan lives in Park Slope with his spouse Amanda, a neuropsychology professor at Cornell Neurosurgery, and their two young sons, Jonah and Gabriel.
