I treat adult patients who are dealing with a variety of psychiatric conditions. Everyone who comes to my office has a unique history and needs, and together we work out an individualized treatment plan. For some, our sessions are primarily focused on psychotherapy, problem solving and encouraging healthy lifestyle changes. For others, we focus more on medication management. Regardless of the approach, the goal is to reduce suffering and improve functioning so that people are better able to lead their lives.

My goal is to help patients achieve optimal life functioning and satisfaction in their relationship with themselves and others, at home, work and community. I am flexible in my approach, preferring to let the circumstances and reality of the patient inform our work together. My patients are not primarily seeking medication maintenance absent regular psychotherapy, and many are not in need of or requesting medications. At times some medications may be useful in addition to therapy. As founder and CEO of a mid-size company that I sold in 2018, I welcome staff, managers and executives with personal, family or work challenges.

I practice an integrative approach, as I firmly believe that behavior is never isolated and is comprised of factors that include genetics, environment, diet, sleep and even our level of physical activity. While I do prescribe medication, and understand that they can be an integral part of healing, I find that genuine growth comes from introspection and challenging oneself.
