Trauma/trans-generational trauma is at the root of much of our suffering. We often develop maladaptive coping strategies and enact the same repeated dysfunctional patterns unconsciously until our insight and awareness increases. I work with clients who are ready for deep physical, spiritual and psychological transformation. My clients have tried multiple medication cocktails, endless hours of psychotherapy, and are still struggling with severe emotional distress. They are tired of the biochemical model (medication only-bandaids on bullet wounds approach) and wish to be treated holistically to meet their individual needs.

I am a Mayo Clinic and Harvard-trained psychiatrist with nearly 20 years of experience working in healthcare. I discovered a love for the humanities—notably literature and philosophy—early in life due to the profound way in which they helped me to understand and appreciate the human condition. This eventually merged with an interest in medicine and a desire to help improve people's lives. My interactions with patients tend to be relational and existentially-oriented, focusing heavily on personal growth and empowerment within a larger context of meaning and values.

Our practice is centered on prioritizing health and true perspective, allowing problems to be better defined, and real solutions developed. This is the Revolution. In addition to general psychiatric evaluation and management, we employ IV NAD+ for safe outpatient detoxification from alcohol, opioids, and other drugs. Because of its natural healing effects, NAD+ is also used to optimize health, mental and physical, and therefore treats other neurodegenerative disorders.

Psychiatrists are the only doctors who don't look inside the body to assess a problem. Think about it; all other doctors use imaging and labs to look inside a person’s body when making a diagnosis. That coupled with your symptoms is how they determine what the problem is. Unfortunately, mental health providers have learned that how a person feels is their only tool in assessing somebody. Because of this, psychiatrists often have no idea what’s causing the problem. This limits the treatment options to a prescribed “band-aid" that is used to reduce symptoms, instead of addressing the underlying cause of a problem.
