I've been working as a Board Certified Psychiatrist for over 15 years, and throughout that time I've been most interested in working with individuals who struggle with addiction or co-occurring illnesses. I am able to provide my clients with outpatient detoxification from alcohol and opioids as long as safety criteria are met. Evidence shows people are most likely to achieve recovery through a combination of medications and counseling. When you come to Elevate, you can have all of your needs met under one roof: Medication Management, Outpatient Detox, Individual Therapy, Group Therapy and IOP.

Unresolved emotional conflicts lie at the core of human suffering at times life can be unusually painful, scary and confusing. We may feel anxious, sad, discouraged and alone and not know what to do. Talking things out with someone can help us become clearer about who we are, our strengths and also our self-defeating ways so we can move forward with an improved sense of self and direction.

Accepting new patients as of 01/01/2023: You may have started therapy but see limited progress. Your doctor or loved one may have suggested that you consider medication to address symptoms of low mood or anxiety. You may be experiencing a major life transition - relationship stress, first-time parenthood, education or career change - and find that despite your best efforts to manage you feel constantly overwhelmed. Whether you are newly interested in medication or are seeking a second opinion, my approach is collaborative and evidence based.
