Please note: Telepsychiatry is available during COVID-19 pandemic. Through my training at Sheppard Pratt, I practice an integrated approach with consideration for the mind/body connection. While medications can play an important role in treatment of psychiatric illnesses, I endeavor to consider the whole person, paying careful attention to the individual and their internal world. Depressive and anxiety disorders are particularly suited to this holistic approach.

Do you feel disconnected from close relationships, despite being surrounded by technology and social media 24/7? Are anxiety, trauma and low mood robbing you of the joy and spontaneity of life? Together, my clients and I walk through the biological, mental and emotional aspects of these conditions and gain an understanding of their origins as well as hidden strengths each of us has at our core. There is much to be discovered in all of us. With sensitive and timely use of medication and psychotherapy, these struggles and strengths begin to reveal themselves in fulfilling ways that restore meaning and function to our lives.

I've been an osteopathic psychiatrist for over 27 years. Trained as both a psychotherapist and psychopharmacologist, I use a combined approach to symptoms—often talk therapy, and medication, when needed. As an osteopathic doctor, I look at you as a whole person. Not only the psychiatric issues, but environmental, social, or underlying medical disease. I'm also more attuned to side effects of medication and how medication may actually be causing the problem. My therapy approach is a combination of insight-based (cognitive) and emotion-based (learning emotional awareness and acceptance of your body’s full range of sensations).
