About

I am board certified in psychiatry and neurology, and specialize in adult/geriatric, reproductive, and adolescent psychiatry . I focus on the whole individual -- not just a constellation of symptoms -- and the treatment I provide is comprehensive, and believe in integrative care . My focus is on the relationship with my patients, maintaining trust, and providing excellent care. I approach my patients with the same dedication I would want my own loved ones and family to receive. I do not accept insurance but provide a superbill that you can submit for out of network benefits. ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS AT THIS TIME.
I see patients for a variety of mental health, emotional and medical concerns that cause psychiatric issues including depression, anxiety, insomnia, OCD, trauma, ADHD, mood, eating disorders, pregnancy/postpartum, infertility, and menopause, grief, stress or time of transition. I also can assist with disability or emotional support letters.
I specialize in reproductive psychiatry and women's mental health, as well as medically ill patients. I have unique training and understanding in treating patients who have co-morbid medical issues that can affect their mental health, including Lyme disease, Cancer, Chronic Pain, Autoimmune, Thyroid and Neurologic illnesses .
