I have been in private practice for thirty plus years. I work interactively with people as they gain personal awareness, heal from the loss of losing a loved one, loss of a job, and or their health. I help individuals increase their self esteem, and make positive decisions that change their life. Are you going through a rough time, feel down, anxious, are you grieving. Do you desire more positive relationships? Are you struggling and feel blocked in your work and or relationships? I enjoy helping individuals, become unblocked, reach their potential, and live a happier, healthier life.

Ideally my patient is as invested in their care as I am. They could have a variety of diagnoses but the thing they have in common is they are willing to give the process time, are open to new ideas, and know there is no magic pill to fix all their problems. My patients want to get to the best version of themselves and are willing to try therapy as well as medications to help them reach that goal. My patient wants an empathetic, listening provider who can guide their care based on the evidence, but tailored to their individual needs.

Psychiatrist, MD

I am a board certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist who works hard to practice psychotherapy and psychopharmacology in both a private & supportive setting. While I strongly believe in pharmacologic interventions backed by empirical evidence, I am a firm believer in the value of therapy & more holistic interventions (exercise, diet, meditation, mindfulness). I understand the importance of shoring up wellness rather than treating illness, and you can expect to spend a significant amount of time discussing the importance of sleep, fitness and nutrition, in addition to tackling deeper psychological issues.

Most patients I have encountered in a mental health capacity have issues that affect their regular activities of daily living. Which is when most patients begin to seek help. Not being able to accomplish those daily tasks that we will normally complete without any prompting can be very debilitating both mentally and physically.
