I have been practicing psychiatry for nearly the last 30 years and take great pride in what I do. I treat adults of all ages. My goal is to make the most accurate diagnosis possible, help my patients make the behavioral changes that would help them improve, to treat with the least amount of medication and curtail as many side-effects as possible. If can enable my patients to full functionality and avoid hospitalizations to the least possible, I am succeeding.

My approach is to optimize wellness by combining integrative and holistic principles with the traditional practice of psychiatry. As an osteopathic physician, my foundation is based on principles of treating the whole person, incorporating mind, body, and spirit; acknowledging that the body is capable of self-regulation and self-healing; and realizing that structure and function are reciprocally related.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Psychiatrists
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions). It affects children, kids, teens and adults. Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
