My Practice

I specialize in providing excellent psychiatric care for children, adolescents, and adults. I understand the need for consistent, confidential, and comprehensive care, so I am not tied to any large medical corporation or managed care company. This means that I can focus more on my patient's needs, and on providing the highest level of care possible.

While many psychiatrists focus their practices on prescribing medications, I focus mainly on individual psychotherapy.  I attempt to help patients understand the underlying reasons for their problems, so that they can make better choices and change long-standing patterns that are not working for them. When medications may be appropriate to help control particular symptoms, I discuss this thoroughly so that patients can make informed decisions.

I am experienced in treating a wide array of issues and disorders, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Career Difficulties
  • Eating Disorders
  • School Difficulties
  • Behavior Problems
  • Parent Guidance
  • Intimacy Issues
  • Mood Disorders
  • Panic Disorders
  • Substance Abuse
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Trauma
  • Grief
