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.
