I am an adult psychiatrist seeing patients in CA, MA, & NY, trained in neuroscience, psychiatric genetics, and nutritional psychiatry with a vested interest in women’s and perinatal psychiatry. I am dedicated to helping women through difficult transitions like pregnancy, the impact of stressful work environments on health, developing healthy relationships, and managing mental health balance when life requires a different way of operating. I work with women looking to get through unforeseen roadblocks and get them on the path to operating well in their bodies and nervous systems so they can thrive.
I help women become more sensitive to their whole nervous system that is constantly providing information and input in order to process the world. When we are attuned to ourselves, we are able to adapt with greater aptitude.
If you're looking for a way to find more peace, balance between rest and vigor, have stronger relationships, become closer to your body, mind, spirit, and world around you, send me a message and I'll see if I can help. My goal is to help all women thrive.
