Hello and Welcome to my practice. I emphasize an individualized and whole person approach to wellness and believe strongly in daily exercise, healthy diet, and mindfulness/meditation. Mindfulness and meditation come in many forms and is rapidly being recognized as essential in all areas of medicine. Although teachings about this have been around for thousands of years, only recently has this been rediscovered and it's importance recognized. If I can't provide the specific therapy that you need, I'm comfortable partnering with other qualified therapists who can.
I am a board certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist who specializes in helping people with a broad range of issues, such as depression and other mood disorders, anxiety, post traumatic stress, ADHD, and others. I use both psychotherapy and medications in addition to stressing general wellness to improve both emotional and physical health.
Having grown up in Western North Carolina and attended UNC Chapel Hill and ECU Medical School, I feel a special connection with the people living in and around Asheville. Having worked on the inpatient Copestone Child and Adolescent psychiatric units for the last 5 years has given me even more insight into the specific problems of folks in the region.
