Preferred Name: Haran

About Me

I am a double board-certified physician and addiction specialist. My virtual private practice offers a warm, comfortable and safe space for anyone who is struggling with substance use and searching for help in addressing the wide range of associated psychological struggles and emotional issues. I provide individualized, evidence-based treatments incorporating psychotherapy and the judicious use of medications to alleviate your symptoms and restore you back to emotional wellness and assist you in finding your own personalized path to recovery. I specialize in patients struggling with alcohol, opioids, benzodiazepines, cannabis and cocaine. If you struggle with any of these substances, you've invariably faced the pains of isolation, shame, and judgment that accompany them. I aim to provide a supportive environment to mitigate those pains so we can focus on addressing your struggles on your terms.

Education & Experience

My training in addition to EMDR training includes a fellowship in addiction medicine at the Addiction Institute of Mount Sinai as well as residency training at University of California San Diego and medical school at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
