My Practice

I specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of mental, addictive, and emotional/psychiatric problems, such as the following:

Depression and Bipolar Disorder
Substance Abuse/Chemical Dependency
Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity
Panic Disorder
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
Social Phobia and Post Traumatic Stress
Somatoform/Psychosomatic Issues 

As a psychiatrist, I have helped hundreds of folks through their struggles with mental illnesses and the challenges of life.

My aim is to provide excellence in psychiatric care; I will take a “whole person” approach with you and will provide a safe place for you to tell me your story so that we can collaborate on solutions.

I promise to listen to you! My practice generally focuses on adults, however, I do enjoy seeing children and adolescents for medication management, provided that they are working with a licensed mental health professional for psychotherapy (Ph.D., clinical social worker, licensed mental health counselor, etc.).

I particularly enjoy helping guide my patients in overcoming problems with bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety. Specifically, I help people with major depressive, panic, post-traumatic stress, social anxiety, bipolar, and psychosomatic disorders. I also work with addiction medicine and with clinical hypnosis…I have special training in each. I combine all of my craft in personal coaching, and in helping people without a diagnosable psychiatric problem maximize happiness.

In general, I refer to other psychiatrists problems with severe eating, personality, impulse control, schizophrenic, and psychotic disorders.
