I think it is important to tailor treatment plans to fit the individual. There is no one-sized solution in mental health care. Therapy is often a key part of that treatment plan and I encourage patients to seek therapy in addition to medication. I use a holistic approach to care, combined with evidence-based research. I provide medication management for ages 15 and older. I have a strong background in treating addiction, especially opioid use disorder and alcoholism.

As a Psychiatrist, hearing patients out and understanding what symptoms they consider most impairing to them is the most important part of my personal practice. I prefer a collaborative space where both myself and the patient can talk about their conditions in an in depth way, in order to find what specific treatments will work best for them. To me, an ideal patient has good insight into their condition or is willing to develop this through dedication towards treatment.

Welcome! I am board-certified in adult and addiction psychiatry. I provide treatment for ADHD, anxiety, mood disorders and addictions. Symptoms from these conditions can overlap and can cause patients to feel like they don't identify with one "label." They can also manifest as feeling a lack of purpose, engaging in "non-productive" time-consuming behaviors, being uncomfortable around other people and feeling negatively about oneself. I specialize in understanding the intersection of these conditions and experiences.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Concord is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Concord Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Concord has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub-specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Concord, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Concord Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
