  1. Who are you and what do you do professionally?

I am an American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology-Certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist based in, Moorestown, New Jersey. I have clinical expertise in both psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic treatments.

I completed a fellowship in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania/The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in July 2011. During my fellowship, I was awarded the 2011 Graduate Education Committee Award for Excellence in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. As part of my comprehensive training, I was formally trained and certified in Ecosystemic Structural Family Therapy, by Dr. Marion Lindblad-Goldberg from the well-known and highly regarded Philadelphia Child and Family Therapy Training Center, Inc.

Prior to moving to Philadelphia, PA, I completed my adult psychiatry residency at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago, IL. During my residency, I received the Achievement Award for Clinical Practice and was honored by being named Chief Resident. I graduated from Ross University School of Medicine in 2006 and Villanova University in 2002.


  1. What is your career?

My practice is focused on using evidence based medicine to treat children, adolescents, families and adults with mood, anxiety, psychotic and behavioral disorders, as well as substance use disorders. One of my areas of specialty is ADHD. My top priority is the well-being of my patients and their families and I pride myself in providing the absolute highest quality of psychiatric care to my patients.  Please feel free to visit my website:


  1. What is your connection to Greece?

My late maternal Grandfather, Stelios Saffos, was born on the Island of Ikaria.  He married my late gradmother, Rose Mavronikolas, who was a first generation Greek-American also from the Island of Ikaria.  I was very involved at St. Thomas Greek Orthodox Church throughout my childhood.  I attended and graduated Greek School at St. Thomas.  I was an active member of the Hellenic Heritage Dance Group and GOYA throughout high school.


  1. Why are you an HMS member?

I am very proud of my Greek Heritage and feel that it is a special part of who I am individually as well as professionally.  I’m in agreement with the HMS mission statement, “To unite physicians and other health care professionals of Hellenic heritage to foster, promote and support medical, research, educational and cultural programs of the highest possible standards that will enrich the quality of life of the individual and the community of greater Philadelphia.”


  1. What do you do outside of your profession?

I am married to James Salman, an oral maxillofacial surgeon who is in private practice in South Jersey and on faculty at University of Pennsylvania School of Dentistry.  We have a two-year-old son John and are expecting our second child in early March.
