During my time working in primary care I have observed significant deficits in access to quality mental health care for both the geriatric and adult populations including patients with dementia, major depressive disorder, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and substance use disorder. I’ve become focused on helping fill in those gaps in care. So often medications are quickly prescribed to manage complex issues that need an interdisciplinary and holistic approach. I obtained my buprenorphine waiver to help contribute to a solution of the opiate crisis which I have seen devastate the lives of people of all ages.

I have expertise in treating bipolar disorder, ADHD, depression, treatment resistant depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, psychosis, neurocognitive disorders, substance use disorders, and OCD.
I have years of experience working as a family physician and a psychiatrist. I understand that there are many important factors in assessing a patient's mental health status and use this information to make a more complete assessment. Specifically, as a psychiatrist, I understand that each person needs to have patient focused care and what might work for one patient will not work for the next patient. I look at each patient as an individual and make sure that they are receiving the best care. I monitor my patients closely to see how they are responding to treatment and assist them in improving their overall well-being.

My experience and passion has been the field of treatment for professionals, i.e. healthcare professionals, with substance use or dual diagnoses, and their loved ones. Professionals have unique stressors and greater accountability to the public, and this can drive them underground. In our present time, these stressors have multiplied, and they may be more reluctant to ask for help in fear of losing something important to them. My experience, however, is not limited to healthcare professionals; their turmoil is the human condition.
