"I use a multidisciplinary and integrative approach to treating psychiatric disorders. I use my background in molecular biology to devise a plan for medications that corrects biologic imbalances. To identify the correct medications for a patient more quickly, I use specialized tests such as genetic testing and a type of EEG test called PEER by Mynd Analytics to cut down on trial and error. I also use alternative techniques to get better results and to treat patients who can't tolerate medications, or for whom medications have been ineffective."

"*Accepting new patients* Compassionate, non-judgmental and individualized care is what I believe in. Good mental health treatment is a partnership between a doctor and a patient towards achieving the best possible outcome. I have worked in different clinical settings before transitioning to private practice which gives me the time and flexibility truly needed to address a person's mental health needs. I like to look at the big picture and go to the root of issues rather than superficially treating symptoms alone. This approach has led to wonderful clinical outcomes. I look forward to working with you. "
