I am a board certified Psychiatrist with years of experience. What makes me unique is that I utilize a multidisciplinary approach when treating each patient/client, taking into account multiple variables and tailoring treatment accordingly. While I do have some areas of particular interest, there is nothing under the umbrella of mental health that I feel uncomfortable treating. Most patients find me to be down to earth, relatable, knowledgeable, and compassionate. Furthermore, I do my best to stay up to date on the current treatment options/medications/modalities and incorporate lifestyle changes/improvements at all times.

Your ability to recognize your difficulties, and decision to reach out for help are good signs towards a readiness to engage in therapy. My practice addresses the spectrum of mental health, across ages and types of interventions; I am best suited to provide dynamic psychotherapies, with or without medications, and am rewarded to work with adults as well as adolescents and children, although my practice is mainly with adults. I have recently started an art group therapy aimed to teen girls, about which you can read more in the designated section.
