The foundation of my practice is a thoughtful, integrated treatment approach that centers around psychodynamic psychotherapy. For adolescents and adults, I offer a more intensive form of psychodynamic psychotherapy, known as psychoanalytic psychotherapy, for those interested in a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships. I also work with children and their parents, and I provide psychodynamically informed play therapy for children who need help expressing, working through, and mastering difficult feelings. I am board certified in both general psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry.

Let’s make it happen for you. I am straightforward in my approach, listen carefully and work at your pace.

I believe one of the bravest things a person can do is be vulnerable enough to share their story. Especially when you don’t feel well, calling a doctor can be tremendously difficult. I promise I’m here to listen respectfully to your experience. I aim to provide a safe and collaborative therapeutic space as I join you on your healing journey. My approach is grounded in relational supportive counseling and mindfulness. I can assist you in coming into deeper awareness about core beliefs and ways of being, and help you discover yourself as you face the existential quandaries in your life.

Teen Psychiatrists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence.
