***Offering Same Week Appointments** With a therapy-first model, I want you to feel in control and share in the decision-making process to start any medications. I order labs to rule out common "physiological" reasons for feeling the way you do. It's a longer approach, but our patients feel heard, respected, and most importantly- hopeful. I have extensive experience working with college-transition/young adult patients, LGBTQ + persons, and minorities.

I am a psychiatrist specializing in therapy and medication management for adults and late adolescents. My practice provides the time for an in-depth assessment of a patient's needs and the formulation of a detailed treatment plan. The initial assessment usually takes two meetings and forms the foundation for an ongoing therapeutic relationship. I primarily utilize psychodynamic approaches, within a holistic framework that considers diet, exercise, and work-life balance. I provide treatment in a warm, compassionate, and accepting environment.

Mental health awareness and acceptance has led to more people seeking help. One issue is Adult Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD or formerly also known as ADD). Some adults with ADHD get better as they age but others continue to have symptoms that interfere with everyday life. Have you ever wondered why you struggled to pay attention? Why you were always so disorganized, and forgetful? Were you ever called "lazy" just because you couldn't start or finish something even though you tried your hardest? It most likely wasn't you! These are just some of the symptoms we find in adults with undiagnosed ADHD.
