Psychiatry is the medical specialty that treats psychological/emotional disorders, but I hope to see beyond medical "diagnoses" to possible existential issues. I feel a deep sense of responsibility to the patients who choose me for their care and I try to offer both help with explicit goals and guidance. Another high priority for me is to do the work as efficiently as possible - to minimize your costs in time and money.

Are you feeling stuck in your relationships and/or with your feelings? We all run into conflict at times and have brief ups and downs. But when we get stuck - perhaps in a pattern of reacting to "triggers" in a relationship, or in one mood state like depression or anxiety, it can be so frustrating, lonely and feel hopeless at times. I love to facilitate relationships getting unstuck and find the combination of EFT and tools from David Burns' team therapy effective in facilitating this. *Couples therapy will get first session free and have 1/2 price of my usual rates for couples starting therapy in September*

I am a board certified adult psychiatrist and see patients for therapy with or without medication. My focus is in Depression, Anxiety, and OCD. However, what I emphasize in sessions is not the general diagnosis but the particularity, uniqueness, and subjectivity of a patient. I strive to create a space in which the patient's subjectivity emerges. Then to explore and work through what emerges in this process guides me. My hope is that a patient becomes more aware of themselves, their issues, and through this process achieve a sense of satisfaction and joy.
