About

Better understanding our relationships with others and with ourselves can allow us to develop new and healthier patterns. Understanding how your thoughts, feelings, and mood influence each other in less helpful ways (e.g. exacerbating symptoms) is a part of then being able to make positive change. I believe that medications, if indicated, can help improve quality of life and functioning. When considering potential benefits, I also strive to help you weigh all options in the context of your own personal goals, preferences, and possible ambivalence around taking medications. Often this is in conjunction with individual therapy.
I am a board certified psychiatrist who provides both therapy services as well as medication treatment when indicated. I treat adults (18 years and older) in my private practice in Center City on Tuesdays and also work in an outpatient mental health clinic treating veterans at the VA during the rest of the week.
Reaching out to a new psychiatrist can be an important first step in improving mental health but also can be a daunting process. I believe I can help you take a thoughtful look at improvements you want to make in your life while also focusing on self-compassion instead of self-criticism.
