My approach is based on integrative psychiatry, which uses medications, therapy and complementary medicine to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms. I address the combined impact of sleep, lifestyle, relationships, nutrition and chronic medical conditions on well-being, and use cutting edge tools like genetic testing to guide personalized treatment with medication and supplements. I consider the patient’s cultural background in my assessments and I can provide treatment in Spanish, Portuguese, French and Italian. My goal is to help my patients create lasting changes and build vitality, resilience and purpose in life.

In this cooperative spirit, I incorporate thoughtful use of pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatments in the course of the therapeutic journey. The goal of my psychiatric care is to empower clients with the skills and insight required to cultivate physical and mental health.
