About

I am here to help you on your journey to mental wellness and utilize both modern science and traditional healing to achieve your goals. Because you are an integrated body and mind, I use a holistic, i.e. integrative approach. We will proceed through a comprehensive evaluation, followed by a focused, solution-oriented treatment approach which combines therapy and, when appropriate, medications. I have experience working with patients from a variety of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. All want to get better to live fuller lives. All are welcome.
Optimizing and maintaining mental wellness are based on developing a relationship and regular monitoring. Though questionnaires are used to assess basic symptoms, the skills you build and changes you effect are based on regular engagement. No rushed visit here. Instead, you get to experience the benefits of a personal and personalized approach.
If you are ready to invest in your most valuable asset, your mind, call me today and we can set up an initial consultation. Patients are typically seen within two weeks. Treatment requires a commitment of at least 6 months. Please note that evaluations for disability and forensic /legal services are not offered.
