I partner with my patients because I believe the best healthcare decisions are made when both provider and patient work together. Reach out to me if you are looking for a voice in your own healthcare, looking for someone who thoroughly understands medications and wants to be listened to very carefully. Contact me if you need someone who understands your anxiety and depression and is willing to comprehend your unique situation. Perhaps you are looking to make a change but don't know how to make the first step. Or perhaps you are tired of feeling a certain way but don't know how to articulate your feelings. Reach out!

I take a cognizant approach of relating mind, body (biology), spirituality and its interface with ones lived experiences to arrive at some semblance of wellness. My theoretical framework is guided by evidence based treatment practices, research and human development. A thorough evaluation will help to formulate a treatment plan which could include medication alone, psychotherapy or a combination. I work alongside other therapists if one is already involved.

Trauma/trans-generational trauma is at the root of much of our suffering. We often develop maladaptive coping strategies and enact the same repeated dysfunctional patterns unconsciously until our insight and awareness increases. I work with clients who are ready for deep physical, spiritual and psychological transformation. My clients have tried multiple medication cocktails, endless hours of psychotherapy, and are still struggling with severe emotional distress. They are tired of the biochemical model (medication only-bandaids on bullet wounds approach) and wish to be treated holistically to meet their individual needs.
