I am a board certified psychiatrist that is committed to working collaboratively to address emotional distress and difficulties in daily living. This could manifest as depression, anxiety, problems with intimacy or self-esteem, trouble staying focused or feeling connected, feeling excessively angry or guilty, or trouble finding meaning in life, just to name a few. Together we can examine where the struggle lies, what the effective treatments are, and what role medications can play. I treat patients of all ages, with a special focus on college/graduate students, young adults, and women's mental health.
