Approach and About

My goal as a psychiatrist is to provide a empathic and nonjudgmental setting for adults to address issues that are contributing towards life’s struggles. I tend to take a rounded approach to potential causes of symptoms including general health, relationships, sleep, life stressors from social aspect, biology and substance use. Generally, treatment involves medication recommendations, but can also include talk therapy. Given everyone’s needs vary, I work to establish an individualized treatment plan. Ideally, the process will be collaborative and people in care will feel well informed and involved in the treatment decisions. Some seeking treatment will have limited experience with psychiatric medications and I try to ensure there is clear understanding of the treatment path chosen. Others will have more experience and may want a second opinion or reevaluation of medication regimens. I've been fortunate to work with people from a wide variety of backgrounds and ages including working in clinics that treat homeless individuals and refugees to working in private practice treating executives, attorneys, professors and physicians.

I treat a variety of psychiatric issues, particularly mood disorders (depression and bipolar spectrum disorders) and anxiety spectrum disorders (generalized anxiety, panic disorder, PTSD, OCD). I also treat adult ADHD that has previously been diagnosed and documented. Working together with a cooperative and thoughtful treatment approach, we will focus on building insight and making behavioral modifications that can result in a more satisfying life and improved interpersonal relationships.
