Feeling stuck? Are you looking for an alternative to the rigid biomedical model of psychiatry? Perhaps you are looking for a doctor who considers the whole you, one who is able to integrate psychotherapy, meditation, and when necessary, pharmaceuticals? In my practice, I work with health-conscious adults looking to gain greater understanding and insight into life's roadblocks. By cultivating greater self-awareness and balance, my clients can unlock the flexibility, fluidity, and grace with which to live a full, successful, and happy life.
