My ideal client could be a child, adolescent or an adult that wants and needs to get psychiatric care. I am an open-minded and holistic psychiatrist who takes the whole person into account when I am treating him/her. I practice the biopsychosocial model and I also understand that not all treatment modalities work for all people. I tailor treatment goals and strategies for each individual person. I am also a big believer in combining diet, exercise, acupuncture, reiki, massage, physical therapy, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, psychoeducation, groups into the treatment plan and focusing on wellness as well.

I am a Board-Certified Psychiatrist with a strong specialty in helping patients struggling with Depression, Bipolar Disorder, and Anxiety Disorders. I find Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive therapeutic tool that can play a crucial role for those with treatment-resistant mood or anxiety disorders. I take a holistic approach to patient care and treatment plans, considering biological, psychological, and social factors. I have found that being in tune with his patient’s emotional pain is the key to developing a good rapport.

I am a psychiatrist specializing in the treatment of adults and adolescents with addictions, mood disorders, personality disorders, ADHD, anxiety, and psychosis. I offer both medication management and psychotherapy. My approach to medications is a conservative one: I use medications (including Suboxone) only when patients have a full understanding of their risks and benefits, and I am willing to help patients taper or discontinue medications that provide little benefit, or which cause harm. At all times, I am eager to collaborate with other providers (therapists, counselors, alternative medicine specialists) to provide the optimal care for my patients.
