My approach to psychiatry is to offer support to every individual according to their needs and goals. As we grow and develop, we often notice changes in our social relationships, and major life transitions can be a bumpy time. Adolescence is by definition a time of great change, of changes in brain development and a period of adjustment to changes in roles and expectations. It is a profoundly creative time, and I am thrilled to be able to help adolescents and young adults through this transition period.

This is the place! Dr. Cohen...has included us in our child’s treatment. Most importantly our child has shown marked improvement and the future looks bright. As a family, we are included in all decisions. I feel that my child trusts the doctors and therapists and we have access via text 24/7. If there is ever anything concerning we can reach out or the doctors reach out to us. I don’t believe there is a better place for my child. After four months at The Galynker Center my son is back! He is not over medicated, he is stable and he is back in class and doing well. This is all because of the Galynker Center and the fabulous team there. It is the best decision we have made. I will never look back.
