Getting well (and staying well) is a multi-layered process that encompasses the health of the mind, body, and spirit. We at PsychPhilly endorse a "team approach" to wellness. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with other healthcare providers to establish and optimize wellness plans for those seeking care. Few of us can accomplish everything by ourselves.

People seek treatment for many reasons. Sometimes the source of pain is clear, as in a traumatic event or a painful loss. Just as often, there may be symptoms that are harder to pinpoint and understand. It could be that you are struggling with emotional pain due to a difficult relationship or aren't sure how to move forward in life. Psychotherapy can be brief and support you in a difficult time; or it can help you develop a deeper understanding of who you are and what you want out of life. My approach is psychodynamic: I believe that our past relationships and attachments impact how we live life in the present.

Psychiatrist, MD, PhD

I am interested in the thoughtful integration of medication, psychotherapy, and mind-body practices in achieving emotional well-being. My approach is practical and ranges from concrete problem solving to deep emotional healing work. In other words, I can often be "one-stop shopping" for mental health issues. I can work with a wide range of issues such as attentional problems, mood disorders, relationship issues, and issues of "finding one's way in a stressful, confusing world." I work with adult individuals and couples. In all cases, I consider warmth and humor an important part of treatment.

I take a holistic approach to psychiatric care. I first seek to understand a client's goals and meet them where they are. Treatment plans often vary significantly between clients. I feel it is important we utilize whatever strengths a client has and develop plans that integrate one's values, spiritual beliefs, physical limitations, and culturally relevant beliefs. I feel compassion and empathy are some of the most important qualities in this field and I am grateful to have gotten the chance to work with so many wonderful people.

ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS...I am a UPenn-trained, fully licensed and boarded psychiatrist. I help people resolve psychological or psychiatric problems that keep them from fully enjoying their lives. Some of my patients struggle with anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and panic. Others have trouble coping with stress arising from major life events, grief, or relationship difficulties. Some simply wish to understand themselves better or to live more intentionally.

Philadelphia Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, MD
Verified
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.

I like to think I am best suited for treating individuals who are very sensitive and want more out of their lives, those who are seeking a deeper, richer life than where they find themselves currently. Identifying and changing those things that block emotional satisfaction is something patients and I work together on. Doing this allows my patients to make better emotional contact with themselves, with their loved ones and their life's work. I like to help patients identify what is healthy and what is unhealthy in their emotional and physical lives. Establishing genuine contact with my patients is the hallmark of psychotherapy.

It is not uncommon to find ourselves somehow off track and disconnected from who we thought we were. Our relationships may seem stuck and deeply unsatisfying. We feel lost and unsure of our place in the world. This may be accompanied by feelings of depression, anxiety or as physical problems. Even as parents, we can sometimes sense difficulty in our children’s lives. Our child may not be developing the same as his or her peers, or may be struggling to keep up in school. Many times, we are unsure of where to turn for help or may be embarrassed to seek advice from other parents for fear of alienation.

I regard empathy, responsiveness, and respect for the patient as core therapeutic values. While I tailor treatment to the individual, as a psychoanalyst I place special importance on gaining insight about unconscious contributors to current difficulties. I also appreciate the importance of clarifying and resolving here-and-now problems. When appropriate I prescribe medications or work short-term. My style is collaborative rather than authoritarian. For many years I have taught psychotherapy and psychoanalysis to trainees in these fields. I also teach professional ethics. I have published in the major journals in my field and am a training and supervising psychoanalyst.
