Seeking a psychiatrist for oneself or a family member can be a daunting process. Recognizing this, I work to put the entire family at ease through my unique approach to treatment. I describe myself as family -centered, meaning that I cater not just to the patient, but to their entire family . Through a comprehensive intake process that takes into account cultural perspectives, I assess the individual from a developmental, biological, and psycho-social perspective. I view my patients as complex individuals who are so much more than a diagnosis. My preferred modality is pharmacotherapy, though I also provide psychotherapy.

Though dually board certified in both Adult Psychiatry and Child/Adolescent Psychiatry, my expertise lies in college students and adults suffering from anxiety (social or generalized anxiety, panic, OCD), depression, and/or dealing with significant life stressors or changes. I pride myself in risk assessments, and in discerning accurate diagnoses, thereby helping recognize normal patterns and behaviors from those more pathological. Whether virtual or in-person, I work with patients (and their families if warranted) to holistically address their concerns, and collectively develop effective interventions and treatment modalities.

When you are very depressed, you seem to fall into a deep black hole and have no way out. When you are extremely anxious, you want to jump out of your skin. When you are in panic mode, you feel like you are going to die. They are all your perception and can be changed as long as you decide to seek help from professionals. Another example is ADHD. For those people, life is a struggle. It does not have to be that way. Treatments can be a game changer. Good sleep, healthy diet and regular exercise are all important although stimulant is corner stone of the treatments. Consultation can make difference for your life. I am here to help.

Family Therapy Psychiatrists

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
