Announcement icon We offer HIPAA compliant video sessions, Texting, and practice safe distancing with in-person sessions with your safety in mind.
OPEN NIGHTS AND WEEKENDS! YES, we do Telehealth (HIPAA compliant video sessions) Although I was originally trained as an M.D., my current passion is teaching pathophysiology at a university in Phoenix during the day and helping people heal, psychologically, in the afternoons/nighttime. I do not personally prescribe medicine but I will absolutely work with you and your physician to help you get the holistic treatment that is best for you. As the Clinical Director at Breakthrough Behavioral Health, my goal is to get you the best care possible and work closely with an integrated team to help you achieve your goals.
My natural instinct is to make sure you understand both the biological and psychological reasons behind your troubles and then we work together to put YOU back in control of your life. I understand that people are different so I try to stay competent in a wide variety of treatment modalities.
Regardless of what's on your mind, from relationship issues, to job stress, generalized anxiety, to just about anything else, I am confident we can work together to find that next big breakthrough!
