My training as psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, and researcher allows me to assess complex life situations and diagnostic issues with intelligence, compassion, and expertise. For over 30 years I have helped people from all walks of life with problems in living, questions of desire and sexuality, intimacy, as well as struggles with ambition and career. Sometimes these struggles involve past childhood or current trauma, or persistent symptoms of depression or anxiety. I prescribe medication when necessary, always within the context of an ongoing psychotherapy.

I talk with patients in an open-minded and compassionate way. Because of my extensive experience I bring a highly unusual set of skills to any concern, issue, or symptom a patient talks with me about. Life brings with it many challenges and most of those challenges take some work to really change. I see patients at least once per week and usually more often.

As a psychiatrist and a psychoanalyst, I am an excellent resource for consultation on a wide variety of issues and struggles people confront. Of course my intent is that anyone I consult with will be a patient in my practice. If for whatever reason it makes sense for you to see another practitioner, I will make a responsible referral for you.
