I have had extensive training and experience in treating a multitude of issues, but primarily women's issues in context of depression , anxiety disorders (PTSD, OCD, panic attacks, social phobia).
I am unfortunately not accepting new patients at this time. I have been practicing psychiatry for almost 20 years. I treat women between the ages of 28 and 60 who often are going through one of life's "hot spots": the tricky late 20's-early 30's, challenges in fertility, the impossible balance of motherhood, marital struggles, midlife crises, menopause, and the aging process.

I view successful psychotherapy as a partnership between patient and therapist. Because people are experts of their own internal experiences, my role is one of empathic co-investigator to help identify maladaptive thinking and behaviors and, subsequently, to facilitate change in my patients. I also offer "state of the art" pharmacotherapy whenever it is indicated.

Depression Psychiatrists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
