I have been practicing general adult psychiatry since 1997 and have extensive expertise in evaluating and treating individuals of all ages, as well as treating a wide variety of emotional and mental conditions that range from mood/anxiety disorders, substance abuse, PTSD, OCD, ADHD, and eating disorders to consulting with clients about grief, trauma, work stress, relationship problems, adoption, legal cases, disability, and other major life changing events. I utilize biopsychosocial approach to mental illness that takes into account each individual's physical health, environment, and psychological experiences throughout their life.

Psychiatrist, DO
My primary philosophy is that you are the expert on yourself (or your child) and your personal journey to wellness. I will discuss your priorities and goals and then give my professional recommendations. We will then work together on how that to best apply a treatment plan to your circumstances. I am your consultant (as the kids would say), NOT your boss."
