Are you feeling tired, can't keep up with your daily routine, emotional for no reason, dealing with overwhelming stress? You may be struggling with untreated medical symptoms. These symptoms can be treated with the guidance of a physician. "Let's talk and see what happens." I hope to keep things as open as possible, because not every patient will present with a textbook case of issues. I strive to find a way to connect with each patient in a way that respects their autonomy and dignity.

Finding a psychiatric provider can be overwhelming, whether you are looking for yourself or a loved one.

I have 18 years of experience working with children and adolescents facing depression, anxiety, ADHD, and thought disorders. I have extensive experience in treating psychiatric symptoms related to trauma. When a child's symptoms impair their ability to achieve developmental milestones or a healthy quality of life, we must do our best to remove any obstacles that stand in their way.

I believe that the key to effective treatment depends upon a strong collaborative alliance between patient and physician. The difficulties you are experiencing are most likely a combination of physiological and psychological problems.Treatment begins with a comprehensive review of your physical, emotional state and social well being. If you need medication we will discuss the various options. Together we will take into account your unique circumstances and arrive at a personalized treatment plan. Subsequent visits will moniter your response to the medication and help you learn how the medication works.

These are four basic requirements for feeling better: first, you want to understand why you don't feel well; second, you want to do what is necessary to feel better (liking what you have to do isn't necessarily required); third, you are open to the possibility that laughing at the absurdities of life is a really good idea, and four, you don't pay a fortune to expensive consultants in order to disregard their advice. I like to explain why I make any recommendations, and I like to whistle while I work (metaphorically speaking).
