While I am not taking patients at the moment, I do keep a waiting list. I practice a personal kind of psychiatry that is disappearing in the era of highly managed psychiatric care and the fifteen minute medication visit. Even managing medication for a patient seeing another therapist, my follow-up visits are all 25-45 minutes, and I remain interested in the big picture of each patient as an individual human being who I am helping to get better and move ahead in his or her life. I have to remain in touch with what is going on in the lives of my patients, rather than merely tallying up symptoms and writing prescriptions.

Hi! I am a medication and/or therapy provider. I use a very client-centered approach in therapy and utilize CBT and narrative therapy frequently. I have a strong belief that the mind and body are highly integrated and that physical and mental treatment are inseparable. For this reason, clients have the option of participating in a new model of treatment. This would include exercising during therapy sessions - brisk or slow walking on treadmills or Stairmaster at the client's comfort level. Of course, regular counseling therapy and/or medication prescriptions are provided for those not interested in combining exercise.

I use holistic psychiatry to help patient's recover from illness and rebuild health and find meaning. Prior to training at Harvard Medical School, I spent 7 years studying meditation, yoga, and Eastern Medicine. While I treat symptoms of depression, anxiety, and addiction issues, my background in Eastern medicine allows me to focus on a person, instead of a diagnosis. I focus on symptoms initially, while simultaneously rebuilding health through meditation and Eastern medical principles. Over time, my patients' symptoms reduce, and we shift focus to finding meaning and fulfillment in life.
