Psychiatrist, MD, MPH
Are you suffering from Depression that is not as evident and acceptable to others like a fracture, yet way more debilitating in many ways? I can help! I am a board certified Psychiatrist ( i.e a Medical Doctor with specialization in Psychiatry) with more than 15 years of experience. Although I treat full range of psychiatric problems, I am passionate about helping people suffering from resistant Depression ( i.e depression that has not responded to at least one full trial of an antidepressant), using advanced treatments like Spravato and TMS.

I specialize in treating adults, 18 years old and older, on a broad spectrum of mental health disorders. I am a strong believer that every person has an abundant source of self-efficacy and self- resilience, and I, as a Nurse Practitioner, am there to unlock that potential. I listen carefully to all of my patients and their experiences, and then collaborate with them and find the best course of action for their betterment.
