You've noticed how it's getting more difficult to get through the day? Sometimes life can feel heavy, like you’re just going through the motions. By this point, you’ve probably already tried a few things to help yourself. But don’t give up. Because underneath the anxiety and depression, there is another part of you that’s waiting to emerge. Of course, it can be hard to turn things around on your own. So it's OK to reach out for help.

I'm interested in a person's priorities, what engages them in life, and how they want to get there. I take a whole-person, root cause approach that delivers enhanced resilience and renewed feelings of wellbeing beyond "good enough”. I strive for truly well, without side effects. Integrative psychiatry offers solutions to support the complexity and sustained recovery of mood, anxiety, trauma, cognition/ADHD, and sleep-related challenges, including "treatment resistance," which may simply indicate the correct diagnosis has not been found, a biological clue has been missed, or a treatment strategy is not optimal.

My main goal as a therapist is to establish a trusting, safe relationship with you. I aim to develop nonjudgmental, caring connections with each person I see. Although I am a psychiatrist and can prescribe medication, most of my practice, and what I most enjoy, is offering therapy. I understand that it can be intimidating and scary to try to find a therapist and that it can be hard to reach out during a difficult time. I do my best to help people through both the process of therapy and to face the challenges in their lives.

Patients come to see me when they experience emotional pain and need help figuring out how to improve their lives as part of a quest to feel better. Sometimes a problem has built up over time and reaches a saturation point. It may relate to work or school, to a love or family relationship, or to something completely unexpected--a layoff, breakup, accident, sudden illness or even a death--that uncovers a long neglected area of development.

The type of people that come to my practice are disillusioned by the lack of quality care in the mental health industry. They want the best and have yet to find a doctor who can truly understand them. My patients are frequently leaders in their field, highly intelligent, and successful in some areas of their life but struggle with their mental health, relationships, and sense of well-being. I also see patients with complex psychopharmacological needs and mental disorders such as bipolar, major depression, addiction, and other severe issues that other doctors may not be comfortable treating.
