I use a multidisciplinary and integrative approach to treating psychiatric disorders. I use my background in molecular biology to devise a plan for medications that corrects biologic imbalances. To identify the correct medications for a patient more quickly, I use specialized tests such as genetic testing and a type of EEG test called PEER by Mynd Analytics to cut down on trial and error. I also use alternative techniques to get better results and to treat patients who can't tolerate medications, or for whom medications have been ineffective.

Specialties: Post Partum Depression, Mood Disorders during Pregnancy, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, Mood Disorders due to Hormonal Imbalances, Patients with Drug Sensitivities or Intolerances, Medically Ill Patients with Mood Problems, Depression and Anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Panic Disorder, Bipolar Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Attention Defecit Disorder

Services offered: Comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and diagnosis, Medications, Genetic testing and EEG analysis to determine what medications will be most effective, Hormone evaluation and replacement if needed, Psychotherapy (I am EMDR certified), Use of nutritional supplements to correct deficiencies, Alpha-Stim therapy: a drug-free treatment of anxiety and insomnia
