I am a board certified Psychiatrist and Neurologist, with a board certification in Neuropsychiatry. I have had greater than 30 years experience doing analytically based insight oriented psychotherapy. I generally use medication only in a time limited manner and endeavor to help the patient gain some control over the factors that are causing or exacerbating their psychiatric symptoms. An ideal patient for my practice is one who desires to work to gain insight into what is causing their bothersome psychological symptoms. I have worked extensively with patients with personality disorders and severe depressive disorders in my career.
