Psychiatrist, MD

My ideal client comes in and while they may not be able to verbalize directly, they are open to the process of working with me in a collaborative way to present what is going on in their lives currently. They will also have an idea of what their goals are or we can work together to define them. My ideal client recognizes that we are a team and that I am not there to merely give orders but to work as a team in implementing a plan moving forward. There are patients that come in because their prescriber has retired or relocated-of course that has its own management plan.

Do you have questions about whether you need to take medication? If you sense a need for medication (or have been told you need it) I can help you decide whether this is true. I understand what a difficult decision this is, and will use both my psychoanalytic training and extensive experience in psychopharmacology to make sure you get a very individualized recommendation that's fits you well. If together we decide medication is needed, I will work with you to find the the lowest dose and fewest side effects, and will be available to answer all your questions and concerns.

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.
