I enjoy working with those looking to understand themselves in treatment, either with stand-alone therapy or combined with medications. As I offer both medication and therapy, people often come to me when unsure whether they need medication or want to use least necessary. I employ a whole-body approach and I frequently incorporate complementary modalities for integrative healing. My goal is to facilitate each person to find their own path in the midst of uncertainty and stress.

We are a primary care group that cares for individuals with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, ADHD, B.E.D., and other diagnoses. We primarily work with our patients to identify and diagnose the condition followed by the appropriate medication management. We believe in a holistic approach - combining lifestyle, exercise, mindfulness, psychotherapy and when needed, medications. Every person is unique and the key is in personalizing the right medication and the right dose. We use gene-drug information to guide the correct medication choice for the individual, instead of trying different medications to find the right one.

I work primarily with individuals, providing psychotherapy (talk therapy) and medication when needed. I also see couples (gay or straight) who are either in distress, or just trying to improve their communication skills. Much of my experience has involved helping women with depression, relationship problems, parenting or medical illness. I have friends, students and colleagues from a variety of backgrounds. As a university assistant professor I teach what I practice (and vice versa). And as a parent I understand first-hand the challenges of this (sometimes) impossible job!

I utilize psychotherapy into my practice which can lead to even deeper growth and self discovery.
