My approach to psychiatry is based on the principle that the human spirit is resilient and has the ability to heal when supported. With that in mind, I use an integrative approach to help my patients achieve greater mental health and well-being. I work with individuals who have depression, anxiety, unresolved traumas, concentration difficulties, unfulfilling relationships, and career and academic difficulties transform their challenges into personal growth and self-realization. To that end, I seek to help people live healthy and meaningful lives.

Challenges are part of life. Often, we are up to the challenge. But when you're experiencing poor sleep, low energy, poor concentration, constant worrying, or feeling down much of the time, you won't be able to face the challenges in your life in a productive way. You may notice that you are feeling particularly anxious or depressed, or you might notice difficulties at work or in relationships. When these issues are not addressed, things can continue to get worse. A thorough evaluation and the right treatment can make all the difference.

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.
