  • I am an adult psychiatrist who specializes in a wide variety of psychiatric disorders. This includes women with trauma and eating disorder issues as well as adults who struggle with mood and anxiety disorders. I have a particular interest in obsessive compulsive disorders and women's issues. My approach is to fully evaluate the neurobiology behind a patient's symptoms as well as the psychodynamic incluence on their difficulties. I feel psychotherapy is necessary for many patients combined with medications. I enjoy treating the whole patient and frequently do psychotherapy while managing their medications Because of this, I do not take insurance so I may determine the level of care that is necessary. However, I do work closely with therapists by providing only medication management for some patients.
