I treat patients who are experiencing distressing symptoms due to problems with their mood, difficulty thinking, poor concentration and difficulty focusing, or may be having problems in their personal relationships or occupational functioning. People who initially are less concerned with how a problem arose than with the current factors sustaining the problem and what is preventing them from trying to change it. People who want to learn coping techniques and problem-solving skills that can help them regain a sense of control in their life. Later in treatment, people may want to identify and understand the behavior, emotions, and ideas that contribute to their problems.

Life is far from perfect. Everyone experiences loss, unforeseen change, and anxiety provoking stress. When these stresses become so powerful that they interfere with our work, self-care, or relationships, it is important to remember that we are not alone and help is available. With bravery, you can seek help and begin to heal. My goal is to help those who are facing these difficulties. I received my psychiatric training at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Adult Psychiatry. With this experience, I am able to diagnose and treat a broad range of psychiatric illnesses, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.

My treatment philosophy is based upon a balanced approach to healing. From my training at Sheppard Pratt, through my work in the community, university, and VA settings, I have developed an integrated approach to the care of both the mind and body. While medications often play an important role in treatment of psychiatric illnesses, I believe the best practice is to consider the whole person, paying kind and careful attention to the individual and their internal world. Depressive, anxiety, and trauma disorders particularly benefit from this holistic mindset.

Overwhelmed? Frustrated with people in your life? Trouble at school, work or home? Change can happen. I see adolescents, adults and couples. I'm direct, open, collaborative. My style is eclectic, practical and problem-solving. I prescribe anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications when indicated. Psychotherapy is a two-way street. It begins with a consultation, when together we clarify what's troubling you. During that first encounter, we road-test our compatibility as communicators and collaborators. In psycho-therapy, "one size" does not fit all. You should meet more than one clinician before deciding whom to work with.

As adults, often habitual patterns of behavior inhibit us from growing into the effective human beings we expect ourselves to become. Freedom, in its broadest sense, can be limited, depending on our own thought patterns, emotions, and our personal responses/reactions to our emotions. Together, we can look at patterns of behavior, private thoughts and feelings with empathy and without judgment. We can explore how freedom of thought and emotional reactivity can help you achieve your personal goals of actualization.

When these issues are not addressed, things can continue to get worse. A thorough evaluation and the right treatment can make all the difference.
