About

I have been practicing general adult psychiatry since 1997 and have extensive expertise in evaluating and treating individuals of all ages, as well as treating a wide variety of emotional and mental conditions that range from mood/anxiety disorders, substance abuse, PTSD, OCD, ADHD, and eating disorders to consulting with clients about grief, trauma, work stress, relationship problems, adoption, legal cases, disability, and other major life changing events. I utilize biopsychosocial approach to mental illness that takes into account each individual's physical health, environment, and psychological experiences throughout their life.
I integrate and recommend an individualized treatment plan after reviewing all pertinent medical records, laboratory tests, psychological tests, as well as collateral history from previous providers, hospitals and treatment or rehabilitation centers if applicable. I work exclusively through telepsychiatry and currently have state licenses FL IL MO OH TX WI.
I believe in a holistic psychiatric approach to treatment and often recommend some form of psychotherapy, along with a healthy life style involving but not limited to diet, vitamins and/or exercise if appropriate. I enjoy working with clients who not only want to get better but also want to make this world a better place by living a meaningful life!
