I believe that creating a satisfying, meaningful and happy life is a worthy goal. There may be obstacles in the way. Getting help to identify and deal with those obstacles is one of the goals for therapy. Therapy is a collaborative process at its best and one in which the therapist uses skills and expertise as a consultant. That is my goal in providing therapy. I seek to understand and assist clients to live their lives to the fullest with a deep sense of satisfaction and realization of a life well lived.

I have an extensive background in a wide range of treatment settings, eg. in-patient, out-patient, schools, inner city and chronic care facilities. I look for a person's strengths and talents as well as their difficulties. Treatment should be a working partnership for the best outcome. My outlook is caring, compassionate and hopeful no matter what the issues. Each patient is unique with treatment specific to his or her needs. I have fellowship training in psychopharmacology and am board-certified in both Adult and Child Psychiatry. *Genomind DNA testing for medication guidance is now available if clinically appropriate.*

My approach is based on integrative psychiatry, which uses medications, therapy and complementary medicine to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms. I address the combined impact of sleep, lifestyle, relationships, nutrition and chronic medical conditions on well-being, and use cutting edge tools like genetic testing to guide personalized treatment with medication and supplements. I consider the patient’s cultural background in my assessments and I can provide treatment in Spanish, Portuguese, French and Italian. My goal is to help my patients create lasting changes and build vitality, resilience and purpose in life.

I have been a Family Practice M.D. for the last 45 years. Throughout that time, I have always been interested most in Mental Health. In the last 10 years working as a gerontologist at Innovage, I realized that caring for Mental Health was really more than a field of strong interest; but had become the area where I really wanted to serve. My passion to serve (two years since leaving Innovage) has evolved into starting a private practice devoted only to Mental Heath issues. My goal is to provide care to anyone regardless of insurance or financial status.
