With a unique perspective of training in NYC, Philadelphia and New Orleans, I have learned the importance of focusing on the individual and not the symptoms or diagnosis that drive one to seek treatment. This perspective combined with observing the consequences of rushing patient care has inspired my approach to mental health. Centering treatment around the needs of the person by taking the time necessary to really understand underlying issues that are contributing to suffering and discomfort and helping patients find the motivation for change is the main principle behind my practice.
