"My treatment philosophy is based upon a balanced approach to healing. From my training at Sheppard Pratt, through my work in the community, university, and VA settings, I have developed an integrated approach to the care of both the mind and body. While medications often play an important role in treatment of psychiatric illnesses, I believe the best practice is to consider the whole person, paying kind and careful attention to the individual and their internal world. Depressive, anxiety, and trauma disorders particularly benefit from this holistic mindset. "

""No man is an island...", John Donne wrote. No woman, either. From birth, we depend upon relationships to give life meaning. But life sometimes leaves us feeling alone with our troubles. We may feel misunderstood, sad, worried, scared or angry. We may struggle with our direction, fall short of our hopes, suffer a loss. Yet our social connections are at the core of our humanity. That is why I believe talking can help to relieve suffering and create new directions. I strive to help by listening carefully and reflecting with you to better understand obstacles to a more fulfilling life."
