About

I am a graduate of the internationally renowned McLean Hospital of Harvard Medical School with additional fellowship training in geriatric psychiatry from the University of Washington School of Medicine. I deal with the entire spectrum of mental health conditions for anyone 18+ years. Unlike most practices which operate with brief, purely medication-oriented approaches, I spend time getting to know my clients' personal and family history, and how these may affect their well-being and treatment.
In addition to the broad spectrum of mental health conditions of adults, I have extensive experience and training in the evaluation and management of dementia-related conditions such as Alzheimer's disease. Work with older adults is highly specialized and requires significant time and commitment for optimal outcomes.
I will be delighted to respond to your contact with any specific information, concerns, or questions that you may have. Please feel free to reach out.
