My treatment philosophy is based upon a balanced approach to healing. From my training at Sheppard Pratt, through my work in the community, university, and VA settings, I have developed an integrated approach to the care of both the mind and body. While medications often play an important role in treatment of psychiatric illnesses, I believe the best practice is to consider the whole person, paying kind and careful attention to the individual and their internal world. Depressive, anxiety, and trauma disorders particularly benefit from this holistic mindset.

I bring a high level of attentiveness to my work as a psychiatrist that provides the crucial foundation on which true growth and change can occur.

In my practice, I understand that there are often concerns, worries, and even deep fears regarding psychiatry and psychopharmacology. This is why, along with a wholistic philosophy, I take a “start low and go slow” approach to medications, paying special attention to the medication potency and potential interactions with other medications prescribed by other providers. I also believe “knowledge is power,” so together, we spend significant time on education and explanation so that you understand the recommendations provided and you are fully comfortable with the treatment plan which I always provide in writing for your reference.
