About

My psychiatry practice is focused on you and how you can best achieve your goals, whether that is medication, psychotherapy, lifestyle changes, or a combination of all three. Let us work together to help you get 'unstuck'. I am comfortable with prescribing medications as well as therapy. The first half of my residency training was in the Family Medicine Department at the University of Iowa, and the second was in Psychiatry at the University of South Alabama where I am still an Adjunct Professor. Psychiatry was the natural choice because I enjoy having the time to listen and understand in order to personalize recommendations.
In session, we will talk about thoughts and feelings in addition to medication. I am experienced in CBT and group therapy, as well as the medical treatment of anxiety, depression, nightmares, and bipolar disorder. Recently, I added EMDR and DBT skills to my toolbox. I am knowledgeable about medications in medical illness, breastfeeding, and pregnancy.
Please sign up on my website at www.reclaimjoymedical.com to book a first appointment or a free 15 minute introductory phone call about what I offer. My established patients have a secure online portal to communicate directly with me. Although I do not bill any private insurance plans, I do help clients file for out-of-network reimbursement.
