I specialize in state-of-the-art, outpatient treatment of stress, anxiety and depression. I have extensive experience treating patients with bipolar disorder, mood disorders, PTSD and ADHD. Most of my patients work, go to school and are able to live their lives, but have issues that "get in their way." Others experience more significant distress. I treat each person with what he or she needs, whether it is with interpersonal psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, family therapy or medicine, including suboxone and esketamine, if needed. I do not insist my patients stay in therapy for years, as independence is our mutual goal.
