Please note that I am not a Psychiatrist. I am a Christian Family Physician with a fellowship in Integrative Psychiatry. My mission is to help bipolar, depressed, addicted, and anxious people with a combination of medications, supplements if interested, and an excellent relationship with a caring doctor. It is my life's calling to help you with whatever you are going through, using kindness, openness, and humor. I get to know you in a relaxed, conversational way. In follow-ups, we focus on your struggles, improvements, thoughts, and coping skills, we don't just address medications alone.
