Accepting new patients. I practice integrative psychiatry emphasizing wellness over medications. Do you feel like doctors have been medicating you, but not understanding you? Have you been disappointed with psychiatric medications and are seeking a different path, without the risks that may come with medications? Do you worry that you may have become dependent on sleeping pills or medications for mood/anxiety and hope to live a full, meaningful life without them? Are you seeking a psychiatrist who is comfortable with alternative, complementary, and holistic treatments? If these questions resonate with you, perhaps we should meet.

I am a board-certified psychiatrist who specializes in Integrative Psychiatry, combining the best of conventional psychiatry, therapy-based psychology, and evidence-based complementary and holistic medicine. I often help people identify and minimize unnecessary psychiatric medications in a medically-supervised way, replacing those medications with safer, evidence-based treatments.

We are so much more than a simple diagnosis and it has been my privilege to help people return to wellness through honest and supportive psychotherapy, complementary and holistic treatments, mind-body medicine, correction of hormonal, blood, and vitamin conditions, lifestyle optimization, mindfulness, and a conservative approach to psychiatric medication.
