Here at the Venn Center, we offer patients a unique therapeutic experience. I conduct psychiatric evaluations and assessments, as well as provide both individual and group psychotherapy to clients of all ages. I also offer pharmacotherapy and medication management when appropriate. That being said, 25% of my patients are not on any medication since I employ non-medicinal interventions that help remediate psychiatric symptoms whenever possible. Offering these complementary services allows the clients I work with to feel empowered in their desire for change toward a healthier way of being.

It is a privilege to do what I do on a daily basis; working with the "body/mind connection". I love working with people and going through their life stages together; adolescents, college students, young adults and then adults. I believe that the modality of treatment should be suited to the patient's needs. I have trained through different schools and continue to do so. Once we work together on identifying their issues, we work on them with a "tailored treatment", that said; individual psychotherapy, mindfulness meditation, complementary treatment with vitamins, exercises and if needed medication.

I am a board certified Psychiatrist with years of experience. What makes me unique is that I utilize a multidisciplinary approach when treating each patient/client, taking into account multiple variables and tailoring treatment accordingly. While I do have some areas of particular interest, there is nothing under the umbrella of mental health that I feel uncomfortable treating. Most patients find me to be down to earth, relatable, knowledgeable, and compassionate. Furthermore, I do my best to stay up to date on the current treatment options/medications/modalities and incorporate lifestyle changes/improvements at all times.

Are you struggling with your child's behavior? Do you want to help your child, but you just don't know what to do? I am a child and adult psychiatrist specializing in helping children with anxiety and behavioral issues. I am different than many psychiatrists in that I prefer to provide psychotherapy for most of my patients, in addition to medication. Symptoms are often just the tip of the iceberg. I take a comprehensive approach, combining medication, psychotherapy, and parent guidance to move past the symptoms on the surface and understand the underlying issues in social-emotional development.

Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child.
