Announcement icon For the foreseeable future I will not be providing in office ketamine sessions. These will be conducted at home via a telehealth session.
Deciding to get help is no easy decision, especially if we have had negative experiences in therapy or with a provider in the past. I am here to listen to your needs, your goals for treatment and make a plan that works for you. My specialties include mood disorders, including treatment resistant depression, trauma and anxiety. In addition to medication management I offer ketamine therapy, which has been found to have dramatic effects on mood disorders and works quite differently than standard anti-depressants. My website contains additional information about this treatment and can answer questions you may have about this.
I have almost 10 years of experience providing psychiatric evaluations and medication management services. I have worked with the entire life span in a variety of settings (crisis stabilization unit, outpatient community health, primary care and corrections).
I realize that everyone is unique and is seeking out treatment for different reasons. Together we will make a plan that works for you. Should I determine that you are a good fit for ketamine treatment, please note I require that patients be active in therapy and allow for me to coordinate a care plan with their therapist.
