At Roots Behavioral Health, access to care and affordability of care are our touchstone values. I co-founded Roots with the goal of honoring these values in our community. By using a model of working with physician assistants, we are able to help more people in need. And to make care more affordable, our clinics accept most forms of commercial health insurance. As our Medical Director, I'm continually striving to elevate our standard of care.

I am the only physician fully trained and Board Certified in both Psychiatry and Neurosurgery. I think that it is important for a physician to understand that each human person is unique and the result of a melding of Brain, Mind, and Spirit. I see patients that have primary Psychiatric disease and those with neurological disease manifesting psychiatric symptoms. Patients that have a neurological disease with psychiatric symptoms need to be treated with full understanding of what brain areas will and will NOT respond to various medications. My practice employs both medication management and Neurologically informed psychotherapy.

Welcome! I am committed to comprehensive mental health care. I work collaboratively with each individual to customized the goals and interventions of those I serve. I am ready to devote my time, training, and attention to optimize your plan. As a psychiatrist, I use a combination of lifestyle changes, medications, and therapies for treatment and often collaborate with outside providers. I began my post-graduate education at Occidental College, where I was honored Phi Beta Kappa with my Bachelor of Arts in Psychobiology. I then moved on to earn my Doctorate of Medicine from Harvard Medical School.

I’ve been working in psychiatry for over 30 years. I love what I do. In addition to prescribing medication, I provide psychotherapy and psychoanalytic treatment. As a board-certified psychoanalyst, I also provide treatment and consultation to other mental health professionals. I treat the whole person, individualizing different theories and techniques. I believe many new therapies are shiny re-inventions of tried-and-true effective approaches.

I completed my general psychiatry training right here in Austin, and I fell in love with psychotherapy. I like using multiple different types and styles of treatment, and not merely medications. I enjoy working with individuals with Addiction Disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders, Anxiety and Panic Disorders, Bipolar Disorders, Depression, Eating Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, Personality Disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorders, and Schizophrenia Disorders. I hope to have a significant number of psychotherapy patients, and I want to eventually facilitate group therapy.
