About

I have a collaborative style of working that takes people where they are, identify what brings them to therapy and what they need from me. We work to identify vulnerabilities that come from development and family/cultural/ethic backgrounds. Just as important, we work to identify strengths and what needs to be done to bring out the best version of themselves: to care and have compassion for themselves and others, develop their interest and passions. Over 40 years of as a psychiatrist and psychotherapist I have learned that diagnostic categories are not the most important factor in getting better but the determination to get well.
I am a psychiatrist with a base on development and attachment theory and research. I use medications when needed to stabilize mood disorders and anxiety disorders. But psychotherapy research have shown that the best predictors of good outcomes are developing a collaborative relation where patients feel safe to expose vulnerabilities and feel understood.
If you are willing to engage in a journey to explore your life, a journey that takes courage and determination i will do my best to gain your trust and be a reliable partner.
