Our mental health cannot be neatly separated from our physical bodies or from the unique events that have shaped us as individuals. While psychiatric medications have helped millions of individuals find relief from chronic mental illness and reclaim control of their lives, almost anyone who has struggled with depression or anxiety knows that medications alone are rarely enough to achieve the balanced, fulfilling lives that they desire. The question then becomes, “What else can be done?”

Seeking mental health treatment in itself can be a challenging prospect for many people. I'm glad you are taking this step! I aim to help patients feels comfortable, safe and that they are in partnership with me to meet their goals. By working together, therapy can be a rewarding experience where patients come to understand themselves, relationships, and patterns of interacting in new ways to effect positive change. At times, medication is needed in conjunction with therapy to address acuity of symptoms and augment progress. In addition to individual and family therapy, I offer medication evaluation and management as needed.

Psychiatrist, MD

I am the only physician fully trained and Board Certified in both Psychiatry and Neurosurgery. I think that it is important for a physician to understand that each human person is unique and the result of a melding of Brain, Mind, and Spirit. I see patients that have primary Psychiatric disease and those with neurological disease manifesting psychiatric symptoms. Patients that have a neurological disease with psychiatric symptoms need to be treated with full understanding of what brain areas will and will NOT respond to various medications. My practice employs both medication management and Neurologically informed psychotherapy.

Are you feeling overwhelmed by stressful life events and finding it difficult to function in your day to day life? Current life events have highlighted the need for increased access to mental health care. Mental illness can affect all aspects of life if not treated. As a dual certified family nurse practitioner and psychiatric nurse practitioner, I've seen how untreated depression, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder and other illnesses contribute to poor health outcomes and decreased quality of life. For these reasons, I'm passionate about helping clients to get prompt diagnosis and treatment so they can live life to the fullest.

My passion is working with people who want to make their lives better. We all want to have happy and meaningful lives, but sometimes we get stuck and need some help. My evaluation is very thorough. I use evidence-based (research proven) practices in my interview to determine if you have a diagnosis that medication can help. If so, we discuss options that may improve the quality of your life. You will find that I truly seek to understand you..... who you are, how you feel, and why you feel the way you do. Some of the nicest people I've ever met - are my clients. I would be honored to meet you.
