I try to help each person I work with feel understood and appreciated as a whole human being with strengths that can be mobilized, as well as with their own emotional suffering. This enforms me how how I relate to you, your child , teen, or family. Medications are used if necessary, and if progress is made and they are no longer needed, are lowered and possibly stopped. If they don't help I make every effort to adjust, change, or combine to get the desired result.

When working with children , teens, adults and families I address the difficulties in behaviors, feelings and thinking presented. An initial evaluation explores present and past concerns involving school, work, family, crises, peers, emotions, thought patterns, development, physical health, and environment. A treatment plan is coordinated with the patient that unifies the biological, psychological and social issues. An integrated approach includes referrals to other professionals as needed. By practicing evidence based medication management, I review each patient's concerns during the initial assessment and at follow up appointments.

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.

I am a board certified child , adolescent and adult psychiatrist. I use a developmental biopsychosocial model to guide my clinical work. This model integrates biological (e.g. genetics), psychological (e.g. self concept), and sociological (e.g. family roles, culture) aspects of individuals at different stages of their lives. I find this model particularly useful in my work with athletes as well as people with ADHD and eating disorders. I also have a special interest in group psychotherapy and insight oriented individual psychotherapy.

I have experience ranging from children to older adults.
For so long, we have stigmatized mental health and it is only recently that our eyes are beginning to open and realize it's worth. Anxiety, depression, stress, loss and grief and substance use are on the rise, one's mental health is just as precious as one's physical and often time feed off each other to maintain a balance within. Being able to walk outside, take a deep breath and appreciate one's surroundings are so important and often taken for granted. Aren't you ready to sleep well, wake up rested and enjoy all that this world has to offer; see your community in it's light and be able to show love for those around you?

With children and adolescents, we pride ourselves in taking a family oriented approach to treatment. The initial interview includes meeting the child and parent(s) separately to develop an accurate diagnosis. After individual interviews, we meet together to discuss the treatment options that would best improve quality of life.
