I am a Georgetown trained psychiatrist with subspecialization in reproductive mental health. While I treat a range of conditions, the men and women I see are normal people who have something getting in the way of reaching their full potential. In addition to practicing general adult psychiatry, I focus in the treatment of women who experience emotional or physical difficulties during their reproductive life-cycle. I see many women (or their partners) who want a psychiatrist with perinatal expertise to support them from preconception through pregnancy and into the postpartum stage.

Life is far from perfect. Everyone experiences loss, unforeseen change, and anxiety provoking stress. When these stresses become so powerful that they interfere with our work, self-care, or relationships, it is important to remember that we are not alone and help is available. With bravery, you can seek help and begin to heal. My goal is to help those who are facing these difficulties. I received my psychiatric training at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Adult Psychiatry. With this experience, I am able to diagnose and treat a broad range of psychiatric illnesses, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.

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.

The field of psychiatry in Washington has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for Washington child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Washington). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.
