Choosing a psychiatrist is hard. Let me introduce myself. I am a working mother, spouse, and physician. I understand the challenges facing women and men today. As life becomes more stressful and as we do less to take care of ourselves, problems are likely to emerge. I see adults with Anxiety/Depressive Disorders, Marital/Relationship difficulties and other Life Crises. I focus on present-day coping strategies and on bettering your understanding of the way your difficulties are related to overall life history. I do intensive work with people who want to improve their self-understanding, define goals and lead more productive lives.

Through diagnostic assessment and clarification, medication management, psychotherapy, and other modalities, I can help build a treatment plan that works for you.

Is therapy right for me? If you are hurting, if there are problems in your life related to fear when you shouldn't be afraid, and sad when you shouldn't feel sad, or have doubts about love capability, maybe it's time to find out. That is one of the purposes of doing a psychiatric evaluation. I have been successfully treating people suffering with anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties for many years.
