About

I believe in a holistic, individualized approach to mental health treatment. There are no cookie-cutter boxes when it comes to psychiatric diagnoses or treatment plans. I take the time to listen to my patients, so that I am assessing the right problems that are important to them. I believe that it is crucial for the patient and mental healthcare provider to develop trust and healthy communication. The patient can achieve the best results for themselves when they are adequately educated and included in the treatment options.
The best outcomes result from the right combination of modalities. I incorporate medication management, brief psychotherapy and/or referral to an appropriate therapist, encouragement of healthy lifestyle habits, patient education and engagement, and appropriate management of comorbid medical illnesses.
I enjoy meeting and working with all types of people! I have experience in a wide range of mental health concerns, from adjustment issues to psychotic disorders and everything in between! Give me a call today to schedule a new patient consultation!
