As a Physician with dual board certifications in Family Medicine and Addiction Medicine, I believe you have the right to compassionate quality care for substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. I utilize personalized individual treatment with the ultimate goal of helping you learn how to live a balanced drug-free life. I offer discrete personalized outpatient detoxification for alcohol and opiate dependence so you can safely detox in the comfort of your home. Recovery is a process to build you up, not tear you down. Together- with my "tool box" of modalities- we will find the best way to build your way to recovery.

Cutting edge pharmaconomic GeneSight testing analyzes your genes to give information in helping me select the medicine(s) that are more likely to work for you. GeneSight provides answers that can lead to a personalized treatment plan and faster response and remission.

I offer treatment in a safe supportive environment with flexible hours including some evenings and weekends. I use medication management and evidenced based tools to help you learn to live a substance-free life with a goal of minimizing medications over time.
