Are you feeling tired, can't keep up with your daily routine, emotional for no reason, dealing with overwhelming stress? You may be struggling with untreated medical symptoms. These symptoms can be treated with the guidance of a physician. "Let's talk and see what happens." I hope to keep things as open as possible, because not every patient will present with a textbook case of issues. I strive to find a way to connect with each patient in a way that respects their autonomy and dignity.

Not only does this foster an excellent therapeutic relationship, but results in better treatment. This skill was instrumental in publishing a New York Times cover story titled, "Diagnosing the Wrong Deficit." in 2013. I have thousands of hours of experience working with patients with depression, adult ADHD, addictions, and sleep disorders. Everyone I see gets a comprehensive evaluation, including bloodwork and sometimes pharmacogenomic testing, as well as personalized recommendations, whether they be for therapy, supplements, medications, other specialists, or lifestyle interventions.

Taking your child to a psychiatrist is not an easy decision. Many parents have concerns about unnecessarily medicating their child or labeling them with a diagnosis at such a young age. As a physician and as a parent, I take those concerns very seriously. I do a lot of groundwork before I diagnose a child. I use validated rating scales completed by multiple sources and I always work in conjunction with a therapist. I take a family-centric approach to treatment. For school evaluations, I see my role as an advocate for the child, while not losing sight of the school's perspective.
