In my practice, I understand that there are often concerns, worries, and even deep fears regarding psychiatry and psychopharmacology. This is why, along with a wholistic philosophy, I take a “start low and go slow” approach to medications, paying special attention to the medication potency and potential interactions with other medications prescribed by other providers. I also believe “knowledge is power,” so together, we spend significant time on education and explanation so that you understand the recommendations provided and you are fully comfortable with the treatment plan which I always provide in writing for your reference.

I've been an osteopathic psychiatrist for over 27 years. Trained as both a psychotherapist and psychopharmacologist, I use a combined approach to symptoms—often talk therapy, and medication, when needed. As an osteopathic doctor, I look at you as a whole person. Not only the psychiatric issues, but environmental, social, or underlying medical disease. I'm also more attuned to side effects of medication and how medication may actually be causing the problem. My therapy approach is a combination of insight-based (cognitive) and emotion-based (learning emotional awareness and acceptance of your body’s full range of sensations).
