"I am a double board-certified Child, Adolescent, & Adult Psychiatrist, as well as Psychotherapist. I believe in taking the time to fully understand each person’s unique situation because one’s state of mind is inseparable from the family and social systems that surround us. Each patient is seen as an individual and encouraged to be an active participant and collaborator in their own treatment planning. For some, this will involve medications, after a thorough discussion of risks, benefits, and side effects. And for others the best course may be to start with psychotherapy or other supportive treatments before meds are considered."

"I focus on my patient as an equal and active partner in treatment. I conceptualize psychiatric treatment as a collaboration involving a process of two people thinking and changing what either alone cannot think or change. Overall, I have found medications can be, but are not always a first line choice for the individual. Psychotherapy has been relegated to the backburner as drugs occupy an increasingly pivotal role in patient care. I endeavor to find a middle road of plain old therapy, in addition to medications to help my patients find meaning in their lives and satisfaction in their relationships."
