I treat adult patients who are dealing with a variety of psychiatric conditions. Everyone who comes to my office has a unique history and needs, and together we work out an individualized treatment plan. For some, our sessions are primarily focused on psychotherapy, problem solving and encouraging healthy lifestyle changes. For others, we focus more on medication management. Regardless of the approach, the goal is to reduce suffering and improve functioning so that people are better able to lead their lives.

As a provider specializing in pediatric and young adult patients, I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. I am warm, welcoming, and take my time to gain a holistic understanding of my patients, their families, and what kind of help they are seeking. I tailor my care to each patient considering their preferences, strengths, and limitations (internal and external). While I provide pharmacotherapy, medication alone is very rarely the answer. I also focus on developing coping, communication, and creative problem solving skills, as well as identifying additional appropriate supports that will help lead to recovery and success.
