About

I am a board-certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist, offering culturally-sensitive, trauma-informed, LGBT-inclusive and highly-individualized care to children, adolescents and young adults. I work with individuals to build treatment plans that play to their strengths, address everyday challenges and achieve their goals. I treat a range of concerns through a tailored combination of individual therapy and/or medications. My particular strengths and areas of interest include anxiety disorders, OCD, depression, ADHD, insomnia and gender dysphoria among many others.
As a physician, I provide a holistic assessment for potential medical, dietary, environmental and lifestyle factors that could be affecting your mental health, offering evidence-based medications when appropriate. As a therapist, I use principles of CBT, DBT, ERP, mindfulness and motivational techniques to deepen awareness and inspire change.
I take a collaborative approach with kids and their parents, schools and pediatricians to devise creative solutions for a variety of emotional, behavioral and learning difficulties. I help young adults live meaningfully through the exploration of their identity, values, relationships and life goals. I help those of all ages feel heard, seen and validated.
