Do you find it difficult to manage stress, or do you struggle with depression or anxiety (including OCD & panic attacks), PTSD, alcohol or other substance abuse challenges? Working together, I can provide you with a comprehensive evaluation and suggestions for going forward. In many cases, Motivational Interviewing and other types of psychotherapy can deliver substantial improvements. Based on your needs, we will map a treatment plan that includes therapy, or a blend of therapy and medication. If you are already in psychotherapy and need medication management, your therapist and I will cooperate to deliver the best results possible.

I bring expertise in Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy (EX/RP), an evidence-based psychotherapy for the treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
As a board-certified psychiatrist, I am adept at treating mental health concerns ranging from mood and anxiety disorders to interpersonal difficulties and life challenges. Knowing that these problems can affect anyone and cause significant impairment in one's life, I strive to provide compassionate and comprehensive care with the goal of restoring my patients to the state of mind and level of functioning they expect. My approach is an integrative one, wherein I assess one's psychological, emotional, medical and environmental contributors to problems and address these in treatment using both psychotherapy and medication management.

From the latter category I specialize in treating OCD and offer ERP for this.
You may come to psychiatric treatment for innumerable reasons; loneliness or a disconnection in relationships, disabling anxiety, or a vague dissatisfaction with life. I believe that the treatment for these seemingly disparate problems is often a better understanding of yourself, how you look at the world and why you do the things you do. To this end the treatment I provide is based on joint discovery. Together we seek to better understand who you are, what you are looking for and what is getting in your way both within and without. We then explore how you could approach life differently, make changes and thereby feel better.
