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.

Areas of specialty include the treatment of anxiety disorders, PTSD , personality disorders, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and alcohol and substance use disorders.
Anxiety and depression can feel paralyzing and you may get stuck in thought patterns that lead you to believe it will never end. A combined treatment of medication and therapy is usually the most effective treatment to begin feeling like yourself again, regain hope, and find the energy to start enjoying your life. I use a holistic care approach and have advanced training in both medication management and therapy, so my patients have comprehensive treatment in each session.

Trauma and PTSD Psychiatrists

When should I seek treatment for trauma?

Not everyone who undergoes trauma needs therapy to heal, but many do. If, after experiencing a traumatic event, you find yourself struggling with symptoms such as nightmares, dissociation, irritability, or emotional numbness—especially if these symptoms last more than a month and are severe enough to interfere with your daily functioning—you may benefit from seeking out therapy with a trauma-informed provider.

How long does trauma therapy take?

Different types of therapy for trauma unfold on different timelines. Prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy, for example, each take about three months, while trauma-informed CBT may last anywhere from 8 to 25 sessions. Other approaches, especially those that are less structured or that incorporate elements from multiple modalities, may be more open-ended, though many patients report feeling better within the first few months of treatment.

What happens if trauma is left untreated?

Unaddressed trauma can have serious—even devastating—effects on relationships, career, and day-to-day functioning. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can lead people to distrust or lash out at others, making it difficult to maintain intimate relationships; it can also trigger symptoms such as flashbacks or hyperreactivity that can interfere with a person’s ability to function effectively, personally and/or professionally. Some sufferers turn to drugs to find relief. Symptoms may lessen on their own with time, but there is no guarantee that PTSD will resolve on its own.

Can PTSD come back after treatment?

It is possible for PTSD symptoms to recur months or years after successful treatment. This is because, like most mental health disorders, it is not possible to “cure” PTSD, and stressful life events may cause symptoms to recur in even the most resilient individuals. There is no shame in re-experiencing PTSD symptoms nor in returning to therapy when such relapses occur; indeed, many forms of trauma therapy explicitly encourage periodic “maintenance sessions” to reinforce coping skills and ensure that symptoms stay manageable.
