Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment can save your or a loved one’s life. People often hesitate to pursue life saving addiction treatment services because they are worried about the stigma attached to substance use and mental health disorders. In my 30 years of experience in the addiction treatment industry, including my tenure as Medical Director at Mountainside treatment center, I have aided over 10,000 people in their journey for sobriety. I currently oversee Mountainside’s Detox program, where clients can heal during the vulnerable early stages of recovery with the support of our dedicated medical team.

Are you a parent looking for someone who can help your child or teen when you know they could be doing better in school or socially? I am a psychiatric APRN who specializes in treating children and adolescents (through 17 years-of-age) who are experiencing depression, anxiety, ADHD and symptoms from autism or trauma. My approach is conservative, using the lowest effective dose of psychotropic medication, avoiding multiple meds, while also considering whether medical conditions or learning issues may be affecting progress. As indicated, I interface with parents, schools, therapists and the PCP to ensure medications are effective.

Problems with stress, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, or mood instability often seem to come out of the blue. At other times they are tied to specific triggers. Life can be very hard and you may find yourself feeling unhappy wishing for things to change. You've taken the first step in making a change by looking for help. I worked in the Department of Psychiatry at UCONN Health practicing evidence-based medicine for 28 years. I've worked with some of the leading psychiatrists in the area and have developed skills in diagnosing and treating many mental health issues.
