My practice is not limited to any specific problem area, however I am particularly interested in working with individuals who have a history of trauma .
Psychotherapy can be a powerful pathway to healing and change. This change is possible when one feels listened to and understood by someone who is curious, open and respectful. In my practice I provide this kind of listening, and work with my patients to identify not only their problems but also their often unrecognized or undervalued strengths.

I'm experienced treating depression, anxiety and panic disorders, OCD, self-esteem, adult ADD/ADHD, bipolar disorder, PTSD and trauma , body dysmorphism, and eating disorders.
I've been an osteopathic psychiatrist for over 27 years. Trained as both a psychotherapist and psychopharmacologist, I use a combined approach to symptoms—often talk therapy, and medication, when needed. As an osteopathic doctor, I look at you as a whole person. Not only the psychiatric issues, but environmental, social, or underlying medical disease. I'm also more attuned to side effects of medication and how medication may actually be causing the problem. My therapy approach is a combination of insight-based (cognitive) and emotion-based (learning emotional awareness and acceptance of your body’s full range of sensations).

Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Washington has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.
