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.

I have been in the mental health field for over 30 years and am continually impressed by the strength of the human spirit. I am open minded and don't have any preconceptions about an individual or the problems they present with when I meet them at their first visit. Psychiatric services are more difficult to find than ever before while modern day stress has increased demand for quality services. I feel strongly that psychiatric assistance should be easier to find than it is. I also believe that people from all backgrounds, financial circumstances and with varied problems should have equal access to quality mental health care.
