Are you feeling tired, can't keep up with your daily routine, emotional for no reason, dealing with overwhelming stress? You may be struggling with untreated medical symptoms. These symptoms can be treated with the guidance of a physician. "Let's talk and see what happens." I hope to keep things as open as possible, because not every patient will present with a textbook case of issues. I strive to find a way to connect with each patient in a way that respects their autonomy and dignity.

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.

Not only does this foster an excellent therapeutic relationship, but results in better treatment. This skill was instrumental in publishing a New York Times cover story titled, "Diagnosing the Wrong Deficit." in 2013. I have thousands of hours of experience working with patients with depression, adult ADHD, addictions, and sleep disorders. Everyone I see gets a comprehensive evaluation, including bloodwork and sometimes pharmacogenomic testing, as well as personalized recommendations, whether they be for therapy, supplements, medications, other specialists, or lifestyle interventions.

I strive to understand each of my clients as an individual and to craft treatment options that are most appropriate to their needs and preferences. I have found that, where possible, it is best to take a minimalist approach to medication interventions, balancing these with appropriate therapy interventions and focus on life changes that can improve a client's mental health or addiction difficulties. I bring many years of caring treatment experience to each of my client's individual needs. I look forward to working with you.
