I am a seasoned practitioner who offers comprehensive psychiatric services for young, middle aged, and older adults. Trained in Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis, and Psychopharmacology, I use a range of approaches as they are needed in helping adults who are experiencing emotional or mental difficulties.

I specialize in psychodynamic, psychoanalytically-oriented psychotherapy. I offer psychotherapeutic services in conjunction with medication management to my patients. I utilize various approaches, depending on the needs of the individual. As a Psychoanalyst, of course I am prepared to see individuals with neurotic and character disorders more intensively and for longer periods of time.
