About

Casual, relaxed setting to address symptoms of anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress, unstable mood (bipolar), psychosis, and issues with focus, concentration, impulsivity, and memory. I specialize in working with older adolescents, college/graduate students (currently serving as psychiatrist at Haverford College), young adults, and middle aged adults, especially those facing the added burden of life's transitions.
I strongly believe that the role of the psychiatrist is to be a trusted teacher/advisor and, above all, an empathic listener. Medications are just one part of treatment but when used carefully may be an important factor in remission. Therefore, we will take the time to discuss treatment options, potential side effects, and expected benefits.
Open to new patients, evening/weekend appointments available in a couple weeks. Generally we meet at least monthly to follow progress, discuss stressors, and make necessary changes. Due to the nature of this private, individualized, part-time solo practice, I am unable to accept insurance but will provide a receipt. Fee is $200 for 45 mins. No telehealth

Finances
