In my practice of psychiatry, I offer psychotherapy, medication management, consultations and second opinions. I have many years of experience treating a wide variety of psychological and emotional difficulties with psychotherapy and/or medication. I also have training in integrative modalities and feel comfortable making recommendations that might include dietary changes (including herbs and supplements), exercise, mindfulness practices and other healing methods. Every person is unique, and together with a collaborative approach, we will begin the process of finding the right combination of treatment that will lead to your greatest well-being.

My areas of specialization include the treatment of:

  • mood disorders
  • anxiety disorders
  • attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • relationship issues
  • grief and loss
  • undergraduate and graduate student mental health
  • adjustments associated with major life transitions
  • stress management
  • women’s mental health (including perinatal and premenstrual difficulties)
