"I'm a board-certified psychiatrist in private practice for the past 15 years. My approach is holistic and integrative, with a balance between Eastern and Western perspectives on achieving and maintaining emotional well-being, disease prevention, and healing. Each patient's chemistry is unique, as should every treatment be. Psychotherapy and medication management are the mainstays of my practice for a diverse range of issues. I have a special interest in Jungian psychoanalysis (archetypal patterns, mythic symbols, synchronicity, dreams) as a way of understanding the unconscious, both individual and collective."

I maintain the most up to date knowledge on medications and potential side effects. I provide support with insight and feedback to help patients address current concerns and life issues. Most often psychotherapy is the mainstay of treatment. I use psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral and solution focused psychotherapies in my work with patients.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Psychiatrists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.
