My passion is helping people with DEPRESSION. I want my patients to feel empowered because their symptoms leave them feeling powerless. One of my most important roles as a psychiatrist is to instill hope for my patients. Depression is treatable, and with TMS therapy along with medication management, we have even more options for patients who struggle.

Working in psychiatry for the past 18 years, I have extensive experience treating people age 8 and up for depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, ADD, and more. I also specialize in LGBTQ issues. In my way of practicing, I want to get to know you as a person and involve you in any decision-making regarding medications. I am casual and relaxed, but professional. I believe that a conversational interview helps me know you and can reveal things that pertain to your mental health. Through interviewing, evaluation, and lab work we can often find issues regarding your personality or physical health that are affecting your mental health.
