Urban living has its unique challenges, which can lead to stress, depression, anxiety, feelings of emptiness, a sense of loneliness and other highly charged feelings and experiences. Are you in transition, a "transplant" to the area or maybe you have lived here all of your life? Are you having relationship problems...going through a break-up, separation or divorce? Are you experiencing difficulty in connecting with others? Maybe you are experiencing a crisis in your career, feeling mismatched-unfulfilled? Or are you feeling unhappy but can't figure out the source, the "why" you are feeling this way?

As a Physician Assistant practicing in Psychiatry, my role includes knowing your whole life story, your current situation and diagnosis, and whether my prescribing medication makes sense for you. In my experience, I believe a patient and his or her provider need to have a two-way relationship. I want to make sure you are comfortable with our treatment plan and care. I will always discuss with you what medication options are available, their risks vs. benefits, and if there are alternatives such as psychotherapy that would also help. I strongly believe the combination of medication and psychotherapy is usually the most effective.

I like to tell my young clients that I have a great job because I get to work with students, parents, and teachers to figure out how kids' brains work. This involves identifying strengths and weakness that contribute to school performance and using this information for educational planning. Students of all ages, preschool through college, are referred for learning problems (reading, writing, math, language), ADHD-type symptoms, social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties, and other school-related issues. I also provide assessments for independent school admissions, including WPPSI-IV and WISC-V evaluations.

Life is a journey to understand ourselves, our purpose, and how to connect with others. Obstacles such as fears, unhealed wounds, and destructive thinking can impede our well-being. In addition, our fast-paced, high stress, disconnected culture can literally steal our peace. This can result in anxiety, depression and other psychological struggles. My practice is a safe place to pause, pay attention, process, and find coping strategies to manage life well. My approach is collaborative, nonjudgemental and supportive.
