About

People seek treatment for many reasons. Sometimes the source of pain is clear, as in a traumatic event or a painful loss. Just as often, there may be symptoms that are harder to pinpoint and understand. It could be that you are struggling with emotional pain due to a difficult relationship or aren't sure how to move forward in life. Psychotherapy can be brief and support you in a difficult time; or it can help you develop a deeper understanding of who you are and what you want out of life. My approach is psychodynamic: I believe that our past relationships and attachments impact how we live life in the present.
As a psychiatrist, I am trained in psychotherapy and medications and believe that combined treatment is ideal. I practiced Internal Medicine previously and have extensive experience in Women's Health. Medications can be helpful but often provide only incomplete relief. With few exceptions, I do not participate in split treatment.
My treatment approach is collaborative and humanistic. My patients describe me as an empathic and open-minded person, and I approach each person individually. Our first meeting is a consultation where I can learn about you, and you can observe how I work. Together, we will develop a treatment plan taking into account your preferences and goals.
