“Psychiatry is a science, but above all, it is a humane art. Psychiatrists must rigorously apply the best in scientific and clinical research to help resolve distress as rapidly and effectively as possible. But truly good psychiatrists are above all collaborators with their patients, placing their needs first and walking with them through the good times and the bad.”

Throughout residency, Dr. Sadana cultivated a strong knowledge base in psychopharmacology and multiple psychotherapeutic modalities, including psychodynamic psychotherapy, transference-focused psychotherapy, and cognitive based psychotherapies. More recently, she has explored interests in Acceptance-Commitment Therapy and mindfulness practices.

Dr. Sadana has treated patients with depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, attention deficit disorders, mood disorders including bipolar illnesses and psychotic disorders. She particularly enjoys building a therapeutic alliance, forming long-term relationships with patients, and utilizing the combination of medication and psychotherapy, when appropriate, to foster healing.

Judy Spindel-Brown is an experienced, licensed clinical social worker who listens. She listens to how each patient feels about herself/himself because self-esteem is the foundation of so many out-patient therapy issues. She listens to how each patient functions in life.

Judy brings vast experience to her practice. She has worked with patients as young as 5 and all the way up to 87. She works with individuals, couples, families and groups. She works with patients with issues of coping in their lives in whatever way they manifest.
