Message to clients

People often take a while before considering seeing a psychiatrist because it is an important and a vulnerable decision.

If it help you to know, I treat anxiety and mood disorders, OCD and PTSD among other psychiatric illness. People facing life transitions, work/school problems, grief/loss, and adjustment to and acceptance of gender and sexuality issues often seek out my help. I often work with minorities.

I like to facilitate my patient's growth, rather than direct it, and enjoy working with people who are looking to manage their illness and lead a more motivated, meaningful and self-directed life within their natural capacities and interests.

My patients and I collaborate to find ways (medical, behavioral, and lifestyle) to help them discover and work towards their evolving goals.
