Psychiatrist, MD
As a board-certified physician specializing in general psychiatry, I am skilled in medication management. I have worked in the community and university settings in Nebraska and as an outpatient psychiatrist at Oakland Kaiser. Now working in private practice allows me to offer individualized care for my clients. I offer comprehensive and collaborative care. My approach is to provide expert medical advice while we work towards my client’s goals. Medication may not be best for everyone. If you do not want to consider medication at this time, you may consider reaching out to a therapist for weekly sessions first.
