Whether you're struggling with the effects of trauma, depression, anxiety, low self esteem, relationship issues, or other life stressors, I believe that the most powerful resources are the ones that you might not know you already possess. Finding those inner resources is sometimes best achieved with the help of a fellow human being who knows how to relate in ways that facilitate self discovery. Relationship is the foundation of psychiatry, and then specific evidence-based medication or psychotherapy techniques can be applied toward particular goals. I am committed to achieving the outcomes that you define for yourself.
