About

I am a Double Board Certified Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist practicing psychiatry since 2008. I am committed to improving the wellness of my patients through a flexible and responsive approach. Special interests include holistic medicine, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and women's issues. I treat each and every one one of my patients as the unique person that they are.
Every person is more than their diagnosis, and that is how I treat my patients. I work with them to overcome the barriers in their life. I can promise you that you will not feel rushed and unheard during our appointments. I provide my patients a welcoming and comfortable environment where they feel like they truly do matter.
Mental illness is not a definition so do not let it define you. Please reach out and seek help. I aim to provide all of my patients with the resources and means to allow them to live a happy, fulfilling life. I welcome you to join in this partnership to help you become the best person that you can and deserve to be.
