I would rather teach a skill than prescribe a pill, but I will. In other words, if you or someone you know is on or in need of psychiatric medications, yet would prefer to explore other ways to address their current circumstances, my practice is a great fit. This may include those who have tried multiple medications in the past and have had less then optimal success, found that they are very sensitive to medication effects, or wish to explore alternatives such as; learning mind/emotion/stress management skills, herbal or supplement alternatives (orthomolecular medicine), and spiritual practices to support their healing process.

Over the last 15 years of practice I have applied my holistic psychiatry approach with great success to first break Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective and Bipolar Disorder and other mood disorders, i.e., depression and anxiety spectrum disorders, ADD/ADHD, and substance abuse, with an emphasis on adolescents and adults.

My therapy style is eclectic, and I have been using Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy even before it was defined as such. I teach meditation techniques and support the development of daily practices. This creates more long term stable change though helping to identify unconscious self-sabotaging tendencies.
