About

I specialize in treating patients with anxiety or Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). I believe mental health is a vital aspect of any individual's well-being, and I work to have every patient with depression be as symptom-free as possible and enjoy life to the fullest. I find Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) to be an important treatment modality, as it allows me to work with my patients and tailor individual treatment modalities specific to their symptoms, and relieve their suffering from depression or another psychological disorder. I believe that TMS can be an alternative instrument or an addition to medications.
I find a collaborative approach is the key to treatment success. I am a caring, calming practitioner and a good listener. I'm highly skilled in psychopharmacologic treatments and have a goal-oriented approach when working with patients. I appreciate helping patients understand their treatments and answering any questions they may have.
