**December 2020 Update: We are currently unable to schedule new patient visits* As a psychiatrist and psychotherapist I offer adult clients psychotherapy services with or without medication management. I believe that recovery/wellness requires thorough, compassionate work on the part of the physician and patient to address underlying root causes of suffering. We will begin our work with a careful assessment of your underlying difficulties, taking into account both psychological and physical determinants of your mental health.
