Psychiatrist, MD, MS
Verified
I am a psychiatrist specializing in the treatment of adults and adolescents with addictions, mood disorders, personality disorders, ADHD, anxiety, and psychosis. I offer both medication management and psychotherapy. My approach to medications is a conservative one: I use medications (including Suboxone) only when patients have a full understanding of their risks and benefits, and I am willing to help patients taper or discontinue medications that provide little benefit, or which cause harm. At all times, I am eager to collaborate with other providers (therapists, counselors, alternative medicine specialists) to provide the optimal care for my patients.

I am an open-minded and holistic psychiatrist who takes the whole person into account when I am treating him/her.

My goal when I meet a new patient is to understand what they are going through and what has affected their life. If I work with you or your family member I will try and understand your situation and history and will get a sense of how to shape modalities of therapy to help you and/or your family member to overcome the problems. I see a range of ages from children and adolescents to adults.
