I treat children, adolescents, and adults with a variety of disorders including anxiety, mood disorders, psychotic disorders and developmental disorders.
My motto is "Promoting Self-Regulation, and Bio-Emotional Health". I am a psychiatrist and a psychotherapist. I provide psychotherapy and pharmacological treatment for those who need it. I believe medications are not the answer to people emotional, psychological, and behavioral problems. My patients are individuals who want to improve the quality of their life and find their way to a satisfying and fulfilling future. My treatment approach is focused on the strengths of each individual and on helping people to obtain more insight and discover their true self.

As a psychiatric nurse practitioner who has worked with children, adolescents, and emerging adults in various mental health settings for over 13 years, I find a balance of therapy, medication management, coping skill development, health education, and integration of social supports help optimize one's mental health.
Thank you for reaching out; I am not currently accepting new clients until after the new year. Some people find that therapy alone does not allow them to reach their full mental health potential. Some may be considering starting medication, changing medication or looking to continue medication. No matter where you are on your journey to mental wellness, there are options. I provide psychiatric evaluations, medication management, health/nutrition/sleep education, and therapeutic support to children, adolescents, and emerging adults who are struggling with depression, anxiety, sleep and eating issues and other mental health concerns.
