"Hello. I see children, adolescents, and college students for either psychotherapy or medication management (in collaboration with a therapist) or both. I work from a "bio-psycho-social" model, which allows me to fully and thoughtfully consider every aspect of your (or your child's) life--"the whole person"--before working together with you to decide on goals and a treatment plan. I believe that, if medication is ultimately prescribed, it is important to combine it with consistent psychotherapy. I do not evaluate for medication until your child has been in consistent weekly therapy for at least two to three months. "
