I am a Harvard trained, board certified child , adolescent and adult psychiatrist.
Seeking mental health treatment in itself can be a challenging prospect for many people. I'm glad you are taking this step! I aim to help patients feels comfortable, safe and that they are in partnership with me to meet their goals. By working together, therapy can be a rewarding experience where patients come to understand themselves, relationships, and patterns of interacting in new ways to effect positive change. At times, medication is needed in conjunction with therapy to address acuity of symptoms and augment progress. In addition to individual and family therapy, I offer medication evaluation and management as needed.

As a board certified psychiatric nurse practitioner, I can provide high quality, affordable mental health care for your child without a long wait. My approach to care is collaborative, which means that you will ALWAYS have an active voice in the treatment. Not all mental health concerns require medication, of course, but if we do decide that medication may be helpful, my philosophy is always to "start LOW and go SLOW." My goal is to help your child achieve full remission of symptoms and an optimal level of functioning with as little medication as possible.
