About

Welcome to my practice of Psychotherapy and Psychiatry. It can be difficult to reach out for help when you need it. This is not a failure — it’s a sign of strength to recognize that you may need help and to ask for it. You deserve the help you need to get your life back on track. Together, we will discuss your goals and find a treatment plan based on your specific issues, concerns, and preferences. I'll work with you to establish rapport based on understanding and good communication. I can help you to find more satisfaction in your relationships, cope with losses, and sort out who you are and who you want to become.
As a psychiatrist and psychotherapist, I specialize in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. I have a strong interest in women's issues, and have also worked with many men in my 30+ years of private practice. We will use talk therapy and may use medication in your treatment if it would be helpful
We'll work together to discover what is right for you. You'll find me warm and respectful. With me, your treatment will be interactive, practical, and solution-focused. I see the quality of our relationship as important to your results. The safer you feel to know yourself, the easier it becomes for you to make the best decisions for your happiness.
