As a psychiatrist I have a unique practice where I offer combined talk work (psychotherapy) along with conservative use of medication, where necessary. I work with individuals, couples, and families from a family systems perspective, having trained extensively in Bowen Family Systems Theory. I live in Des Moines, Iowa and provide televideo psychiatry throughout both Iowa and Colorado. I see folks on a self-pay basis so I do not accept insurance. However, I do work with folks who are financially strained to find a fee that works within their budget. At this time I am unable to see folks who are 65 or older or on Medicare.

Although carefully chosen medications can quickly achieve much needed relief of anxiety, depression, insomnia and trauma symptoms, a thorough evaluation can also identify many opportunities for improvement without medications. The most effective treatment plan may include work-life balance, nutrition and sleep strategies, addressing, avoiding or adapting to triggers, in addition to multiple psychotherapies. When needed, medications with the lowest side effects, easiest to use, most predictably effective & not addictive are recommended. Ultimately, it is up to each person to decide which strategies they will use to achieve wellness.
