I primarily apply techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, mentalization, schema therapy, trauma focused and brief solution-focused therapy.
It takes strength and courage to reach out for assistance. Thank you for taking that first step towards self-discovery and creating the life you have envisioned. Each person has an individualistic life experience, therefore each treatment plan is personalized and may include supportive medication, therapy or both. I work with clients 18 years and older, who have depression, PTSD, anxiety, bipolar, ADHD, addiction and other mental health diagnoses. As a veteran, I understand the military community and our combat veterans.

My goal is to help my you thrive and become the most self-realized individual you can be. Often that entails at least some level of healing, whether physical, emotional, relational, or even spiritual, before we leverage awareness of the obstacles that stand in the way of living our fullest. My approach to psychiatry is to seamlessly blend medications and therapy so that you can truly live. While medications can be very helpful at times, I don't believe in a magic pill. It is important that you share with me your values and goals so we can also collaborate to find non-pharmacological approaches to helping you thrive.

I specialize in comprehensive treatment of mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse and PTSD that have been poorly responsive to other trials of treatment. After developing a process to treat people with lifelong, difficult to treat addiction, I created www.selfrecovery.org as a way to help people access good help from anywhere. As a physician I can prescribe medication, but I always include therapy to best identify and heal the actual source of the symptoms. I will take the time to review your past treatment, and enjoy improving on remaining gaps to help you reach your potential.
