Professional statement

Please note: I provide medication management in conjunction with therapy - combining these has much better outcomes than only medication management or only therapy.

Also note: I do not take Medicare or Medicaid.

My style is not about quick appointments and hurried prescriptions; instead, it’s about integrative, personalized care combining medication management with multiple therapies in a conversational manner. This approach allows you to comfortably delve deep, often without realizing the substantial progress being made each session. It provides the added benefit of accessing my extensive medical knowledge developed over decades of patient care, reinforced by my unwavering commitment to understanding and nurturing every facet of your being. This transformative journey is not just enriching and empowering—it's a revelation of your potential.

Beyond medication management, I use a blend of therapies like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (for anxiety and depression), Exposure Response Prevention (for OCD), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (for Trauma) and Solution-Focused Therapy (for immediate improvement and better outcomes).

In choosing me, you choose a practitioner who sees you as more than a set of symptoms, but as an individual with hopes, dreams, and aspirations. With a sincere belief in the healing power of empathy and respect, I strive to make your journey towards mental wellness less intimidating, and more empowering.
