Please contact me for: (1) a psychiatric evaluation without jumping to conclusions, explained in plain English; (2) traditional dynamic psychotherapy — only flexible, non-stuffy, and straightforward; (3) recognition of mind-body medicine, i.e., how the body affects the mind, and vice versa; (4) prescription writing when needed, with a light touch and full attention to pros and cons. The ideal patient appears successful on the outside, but suffers longstanding dissatisfaction or self-defeating behavior. Examples include prolonged reactions to trauma or grief, undue guilt or self-blame, or a pattern of interpersonal conflicts.

I am a board-certified psychiatrist with a career-long focus on psychotherapy: conducting it in my private practice, teaching it to interns and residents, demystifying it for the public. We'll consider medical and medication related matters, but knowing you as a person comes first. I offer my undivided attention, years of experience, and honest feedback.

Psychiatry is more than just meds. If you'd like to be treated as "more than just meds", give me a call. We can talk about everything from serotonin to spirituality. For a lot more detail, click the "website" button to the left, under my photo. Be well.
