With a unique perspective of training in NYC, Philadelphia and New Orleans, I have learned the importance of focusing on the individual and not the symptoms or diagnosis that drive one to seek treatment. This perspective combined with observing the consequences of rushing patient care has inspired my approach to mental health. Centering treatment around the needs of the person by taking the time necessary to really understand underlying issues that are contributing to suffering and discomfort and helping patients find the motivation for change is the main principle behind my practice.

Through our work together, I can help you identify obstacles and conflicts that are preventing you from leading a fuller and more authentic life.

Twelve-Step programs are sometimes critical of medication-assisted treatment, discouraging members by saying they are not really sober if they are taking prescription drugs for their dependency. Despite the evidence that medication-assisted treatment help patients with chemical dependency, using drugs carries a stigma. Many Professional scoff at medication-assisted treatment, dismissing it as a temporary fix or taking the easy way out. This is so disheartening to those that it has helped stay sober. Rather, the physician will coordinate the use of medication with other facets of care to ensure that it is used effectively.
