I have years of experience with people of all ages, and I've seen many constellations of symptoms, some quite familiar and some completely unexpected. Whatever your situation, I like to provide an atmosphere of warmth, humor, and acceptance during your visits. For those who have never taken medications for mental health concerns, I can help talk you through the options and decide whether this type of treatment might be helpful. For those who have already tried a number of treatments over their adult life but are desiring further improvement, I can help you look at which new options are worth exploring. There's no pressure, ever.

Psychiatrist, MD

Our only physical location is in Ann Arbor. Immediate openings often available. Schedule on our web site. Special interest in ADHD, anxiety, mood, and OCD. Therapeutic time cannot be rushed. As a medical doctor and psychiatrist, I address psychological AND medical factors by looking beyond the usual 20 psychiatric medications to investigate the underlying biological or psychological issues. Investigating may entail (based on current research): laboratory panels looking for chronic nutritional deficiencies; genetic testing (to predict what meds/supplements can help); brain scans; neuro exam; deeper forms of talk therapy
