Psychiatrist, MD, FAPA
Recently, I added EMDR and DBT skills to my toolbox.
My psychiatry practice is focused on you and how you can best achieve your goals, whether that is medication, psychotherapy, lifestyle changes, or a combination of all three. Let us work together to help you get 'unstuck'. I am comfortable with prescribing medications as well as therapy. The first half of my residency training was in the Family Medicine Department at the University of Iowa, and the second was in Psychiatry at the University of South Alabama where I am still an Adjunct Professor. Psychiatry was the natural choice because I enjoy having the time to listen and understand in order to personalize recommendations.

EMDR Psychiatrists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.
