The human experience is rich and complex. I believe treatment must reflect this in order for people to meet their goals. While many people think of treatment with a psychiatrist as being primarily medication focused, I have found that medications can serve as an adjunct in treatment, but they are rarely the primary solution.
My training as a psychiatrist and psychotherapist allows me to integrate the biological and psychological aspects of mental health treatment to enhance treatment outcomes.
I offer comprehensive evaluations, psychotherapy alone and psychotherapy plus medication management for common conditions such as depression, anxiety, stress and phase of life transitions. I do not offer appointments focused solely on medication management.
