"No man is an island...", John Donne wrote. No woman, either. From birth, we depend upon relationships to give life meaning. But life sometimes leaves us feeling alone with our troubles. We may feel misunderstood, sad, worried, scared or angry. We may struggle with our direction, fall short of our hopes, suffer a loss. Yet our social connections are at the core of our humanity. That is why I believe talking can help to relieve suffering and create new directions. I strive to help by listening carefully and reflecting with you to better understand obstacles to a more fulfilling life.

You may be feeling anxious, depressed, fearful, angry, uncomfortable in social situations, or experiencing other emotional difficulties. Perhaps someone you care about is having problems. Although psychological issues can cause upsetting thoughts and feelings, physiology (body and brain) may also play a role. An evaluation with a holistic-focused psychiatrist can help you make sense of things and find treatments that work. As a Board Certified psychiatrist for 25+ years, I have specialized training and experience in recognizing and treating emotional and medical issues. My therapeutic style is active, collaborative, and solution focused.
