I see patients from 3 years to 60 years of age and I believe in treating the whole patient: body, mind and spirit. My approach is a combination of medication management, and individual therapy, frequently augmented with a support group. I support the team approach, working collaboratively with other therapists or health care professionals. Frequently treatment is augmented with 12-Step study. I am readily available to all of my patients by phone and you can expect to speak to me personally on most occasions. If you receive my voicemail, please leave a message and I will return your call promptly.
