Lena earned her Bachelor of Science at CUNY York College. She then went on to earn her Masters of Physician Assistant Studies at Tuoro College.
Lena’s approach to psychiatric care is collaborating with her patients to determine the most effective treatment options through medication and psychotherapy. She believes the most important part of patient care is patience, building trust, listening to understand, being empathetic, and great communication. Lena treats patients with challenges in depression, anxiety, mood, and psychotic disorders. She enjoys watching as symptoms improve and seeing her patients blossom. The most fulfilling part of her job is when her patients find peace and happiness within themselves.
Outside of her practice, Lena is happiest working on interior design, cooking, and spending time with family and friends. She is hoping to make it to Bali soon.
