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.

In my practice, I understand that there are often concerns, worries, and even deep fears regarding psychiatry and psychopharmacology. This is why, along with a wholistic philosophy, I take a “start low and go slow” approach to medications, paying special attention to the medication potency and potential interactions with other medications prescribed by other providers. I also believe “knowledge is power,” so together, we spend significant time on education and explanation so that you understand the recommendations provided and you are fully comfortable with the treatment plan which I always provide in writing for your reference.
