My relationships with patients are built on trust and authenticity. I seek to create a sacred space in which I can help people discover and become their true selves, using all the resources available. These include mindfulness-based psychotherapy, anxiety regulation, community support, and (when indicated) medication. My work in the field of psychiatry has transitioned from a large, university-based practice of mostly medication management to its current state: a small, personalized practice in which I can provide individual psychotherapy, support and treatment as each person needs and desires.

Accepting new patients. I practice integrative psychiatry emphasizing wellness over medications. Do you feel like doctors have been medicating you, but not understanding you? Have you been disappointed with psychiatric medications and are seeking a different path, without the risks that may come with medications? Do you worry that you may have become dependent on sleeping pills or medications for mood/anxiety and hope to live a full, meaningful life without them? Are you seeking a psychiatrist who is comfortable with alternative, complementary, and holistic treatments? If these questions resonate with you, perhaps we should meet.

Conventionally and holistically trained, I'm a psychiatrist also certified in Functional Medicine. Applying an integrative and functional approach to psychiatry provides a more complete model to treating chronic illness. We partner to evaluate how your unique biology, history, lifestyle and environment are contributing to disease. Taking a wider lens to view the systems involved in underlying disease we can focus on healing root causes, rather than just trying to cover up the symptoms. Seeking short term relief while planning long term recovery, together, we seek the right balance of body, mind and spirit.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Encinitas 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 Encinitas 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 Encinitas, 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.
