My areas of expertise include psychotherapy and psychopharmacology for the following issues: depression, anxiety disorders, LGBTQ mental health, relationship and work difficulties, overwhelming stress and trauma, and ADHD.
I specialize in the treatment of adults with a range of mental health concerns. I treat clients in a professional and confidential setting that feels safe and non-judgmental. My practice draws upon a variety of evidence-based psychotherapies and utilizes psychiatric medications if appropriate. I believe that for any treatment to be effective, it must be built upon a trusting and collaborative therapeutic relationship that reflects each client's individual needs and personal values. I believe in a down-to-earth and transparent approach to psychiatry that views genuine human connection as the foundation of any treatment.

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.

You will benefit from Hypnotherapy if you're able to identify a specific issue or concern you would like to change about your current circumstances, and have some capacity to visualize how you imagine your life will look once you've successfully achieved this goal. There are many different areas for which hypnotherapy can be quite successful in helping bring about the desired changes. Some of the more common issues treated with hypnotherapy include increasing self-esteem and self-confidence, eliminating fears, anxieties, and phobias, overcoming inertia, and psychological blocks of all kinds that keep you from achieving your goals.

The judicious use of medications can sometimes be the key that enables sustained and improved mental health, allowing the patient to feel flexible, energized, relaxed, and equanimous, and enjoy optimal executive functioning, self-regulation, and self-determination. If medication has helped in the past, or if you feel you have exhausted non-medication approaches, my psychopharmacotherapy expertise can help. Whether you have or suspect you have ADHD, or struggle with mood or anxiety issues that warrant evaluation and treatment so they are no longer in your way, I would be honored to walk beside you and be your guide.
