Practice Description:
Available for Video / Telemedicine Appointments

I am a psychiatrist specialized in understanding both the biological and psychological factors of human emotions. I take the needed time to understand what brings my clients to seek therapy, and through a collaborative approach, I create personalized care plans based on each client’s unique assessment. My practice is founded on psychotherapy, and aided by safe medication management.

Through my work in clinical trials, I stay on the forefront of medication innovation and safety, giving me first-hand experience in the most effective, and safe treatments for my clients. My advanced medical training, coupled with my focus on psychotherapy, and my unique experience in medication therapy, allows me to give my clients the quality care they deserve.

My biggest reward is when my clients comment that their experience working with me has helped them more than they could have expected. I believe that beyond my experience, and advanced training in the field, I am able to help my clients by offering them kind and compassionate service. I am truly committed to helping my clients return to living meaningful and healthy lives.
