Psychotherapy can be a powerful pathway to healing and change. This change is possible when one feels listened to and understood by someone who is curious, open and respectful. In my practice I provide this kind of listening, and work with my patients to identify not only their problems but also their often unrecognized or undervalued strengths.

My treatment philosophy is based upon a balanced approach to healing. From my training at Sheppard Pratt, through my work in the community, university, and VA settings, I have developed an integrated approach to the care of both the mind and body. While medications often play an important role in treatment of psychiatric illnesses, I believe the best practice is to consider the whole person, paying kind and careful attention to the individual and their internal world. Depressive, anxiety, and trauma disorders particularly benefit from this holistic mindset.

If you are experiencing the common frustration of self-defeating emotions, thoughts and behavior despite considerable motivation and effort to the contrary, psychodynamic therapy can help! This type of therapy aims to increase self-awareness, leading to greater control over problematic patterns. While psychodynamic therapy focuses on the here and now, together we examine your past, if it interferes with your present. I offer this type of therapy to adults, adolescents and children. Whether you are new to therapy or have tried other therapies to no avail, please feel free to contact me for a consult or second opinion, respectively.

I've been an osteopathic psychiatrist for over 27 years. Trained as both a psychotherapist and psychopharmacologist, I use a combined approach to symptoms—often talk therapy, and medication, when needed. As an osteopathic doctor, I look at you as a whole person. Not only the psychiatric issues, but environmental, social, or underlying medical disease. I'm also more attuned to side effects of medication and how medication may actually be causing the problem. My therapy approach is a combination of insight-based (cognitive) and emotion-based (learning emotional awareness and acceptance of your body’s full range of sensations).

We often come into our personal behaviors, thoughts, & feelings because they have helped us survive our own anxieties. As adults, often habitual patterns of behavior inhibit us from growing into the effective human beings we expect ourselves to become. Freedom, in its broadest sense, can be limited, depending on our own thought patterns, emotions, and our personal responses/reactions to our emotions. Together, we can look at patterns of behavior, private thoughts and feelings with empathy and without judgment. We can explore how freedom of thought and emotional reactivity can help you achieve your personal goals of actualization.
