"I provide compassionate care and consider the whole person when developing treatment plans. Evaluation begins with a comprehensive assessment, including past psychiatric history, family and medical history, to determine if medication is indicated. I maintain the most up to date knowledge on medications and potential side effects. I provide support with insight and feedback to help patients address current concerns and life issues. Most often psychotherapy is the mainstay of treatment. I use psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral and solution focused psychotherapies in my work with patients. I also emphasize mindfulness and healthy lifestyle choices."

"Many successful people live with an inner torment, saying to themselves, "If I only had someone to talk to"; but they are afraid to seek help. It feels overwhelming and shameful. In fact my patients often feel better after just one session, because I listen in a way that respects their autonomy and their own perspective. Together we strive to understand the problems in a truly nonjudgmental way."

"With my background in osteopathic medicine, my approach to mental health is holistic. I believe that long-term psychotherapy leads to the greatest personal growth. Deeper personal work can be accomplished within a therapeutic relationship that feels safe, and thus, it is fundamentally important that I create such a space for my clients. My therapy approach is rooted in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Through this model, my goal is to help my clients gain insight into their own emotions, how they relate to others, and through a collaborative therapeutic process, be better able to work through issues such as anxiety, depression, and grief. With a holistic focus on the mind and body, adjunct treatment may include a focus on relaxation/meditation, nutrition, sleep, and life style practices. Psychiatric medications are not the focus of my practice. However, I can prescribe medications for those clients attending weekly or more frequent therapy if they are determined to be a helpful adjunct to treatment. "

This powerful treatment modality uses principles of electromagnetism to create electrical changes in the specific parts of the brain that are affected by depressive disorders. This stimulation of the brain has been shown to be effective in treating depression and often is effective in treating the associated symptoms of depression like anxiety, sleep problems and post-traumatic stress symptoms. Our patients have often tried medications that either haven't worked or that have intolerable side effects."
