From my training at Yale and Columbia, I believe in treating the patient as a whole, taking into account the entire person with their psychological, social, and spiritual needs. I treat people going through difficult life circumstances including relationship difficulties, family problems, anxiety, trauma and job stress. In addition, I treat all psychiatric disorders, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, obsessive/compulsive disorder, and panic disorder. By integrating psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, and guidance on lifestyle modifications, I strive to significantly improve my patients' general well-being.

My talk therapy approach is eclectic, with insights on: managing the stress of school, work or money; wealth issues; working in finance; race issues; or being a business owner.
My approach to psychiatry is simple. I look at your life thoroughly; from your DNA up through your relationships. Problems in any of the layers of life can cause mental health issues. Once the areas of concern are identified, I will construct a treatment plan to address it. My approach comes from years of working through challenging patient cases as a provider, and personally being on the receiving end of overlooked issues in my own care. I cannot promise to have all of the answers, but I can promise to help you gain insights into the areas of concern in your mental health.

Do you find it difficult to manage stress, or do you struggle with depression or anxiety (including OCD & panic attacks), PTSD, alcohol or other substance abuse challenges? Working together, I can provide you with a comprehensive evaluation and suggestions for going forward. In many cases, Motivational Interviewing and other types of psychotherapy can deliver substantial improvements. Based on your needs, we will map a treatment plan that includes therapy, or a blend of therapy and medication. If you are already in psychotherapy and need medication management, your therapist and I will cooperate to deliver the best results possible.
