About

Thanks for visiting! My professional experience encompasses General Psychiatry, Addiction Psychiatry and Family Medicine. I am the founder of Headlands ATS, a leader in addiction psychiatry. Our services are professional, personable, and based on methods proven to help you achieve sustainable recovery from substance use. At Headlands, we understand that the underpinnings of addiction have little to do with morality, character or personal responsibility – and everything to do with an individual trying desperately to cope with their suffering. We want to help you, give us a call.
Our team is passionate about providing high quality addiction medicine and psychiatric services to individuals in the community, and we offer both office-based and telehealth options. We accept some private insurance plans and medicare. Our out-of-pocket fees are affordable and can we can help facilitate submitting your out-of-network insurance claims.
Many people avoid seeking treatment related to feelings of shame. We know from experience that an ethos of inclusiveness and non-judgement moves individuals toward treatment, and ultimately, lasting changes that improve quality of life. We want to assist you in on your journey back to health.
