Offers video visits
I also use the IFS (Internal Family Systems) approach to psychotherapy.
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.

Family Systems Psychiatrists
Family Systems therapists in Ridgewood view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
