Here at the Venn Center, we offer patients a unique therapeutic experience. I conduct psychiatric evaluations and assessments, as well as provide both individual and group psychotherapy to clients of all ages. I also offer pharmacotherapy and medication management when appropriate. That being said, 25% of my patients are not on any medication since I employ non-medicinal interventions that help remediate psychiatric symptoms whenever possible. Offering these complementary services allows the clients I work with to feel empowered in their desire for change toward a healthier way of being.

I am a board certified Psychiatrist with years of experience. What makes me unique is that I utilize a multidisciplinary approach when treating each patient/client, taking into account multiple variables and tailoring treatment accordingly. While I do have some areas of particular interest, there is nothing under the umbrella of mental health that I feel uncomfortable treating. Most patients find me to be down to earth, relatable, knowledgeable, and compassionate. Furthermore, I do my best to stay up to date on the current treatment options/medications/modalities and incorporate lifestyle changes/improvements at all times.

Emotionally Focused Psychiatrists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Ridgewood Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
