My ideal patients are suffering with substance abuse, anxiety, depression, hallucinations, unstable moods, and generally feel like life could be better. I am happy to work with patients who are on a stable dose of suboxone or other methods of opioid or alcohol treatment. If you just feel like something is wrong in your life and you wonder if medications could help clear up your foggy thinking, or maybe even make you feel like your life is worth living, call or email me! For the most part I am able to see people within about 3 weeks.

Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Amherst has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.
