I end up working with people with a range of diagnoses and experiences, and we would work together to determine what you are most looking for help with at this point in your life. We would try to find a balance between learning how to be more accepting and appreciative of yourself right now, while also working to create meaningful change in the areas in which you want to move beyond just surviving to thriving.

We believe that every person deserves the right to feel fulfilled, purposeful, and happy. We want to make sure you are heard, and validated. It is our belief and mission to uncover your true potential and lead a life worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve past, present, and future challenges in your life.
Often times our lives are so busy we forget to take care of ourselves. Therapy can be an opportunity for self-discovery, self-care, growth and change. We offer a safe environment to listen, reflect, and create both short and long term goals to help cope, and find balance in your life.

I believe I am a capable general psychiatrist, but with 26 years of specialized practice and academic work in deafness and hearing loss, I feel I have specific things I can offer those patients who need them: an understanding of what it means for one's body to change or to be different from that of others; an appreciation for the layered complexity of experience, from biological (say, anxiety) to cultural (say, a culture's specific expectations for what should and shouldn't make one anxious); an appreciation of child psychiatric conditions that affect adults too—attention deficit, learning disability, autism spectrum; a special awareness of the difficulty of establishing oneself as an independent human being; and, an interest and expertise in unraveling complex diagnostic puzzles and their associated medication choices.

Anxious, depressed, overwhelmed? I can help. My goal is to find the best treatment plan for you, your child, and your family. I offer an area for you to address issues at your pace while keeping an eye on your goals and wellness.

To parents: I want to start with thanking you for everything you do for your family. Being a parent is not easy, especially when you are parenting a child who is experiencing difficulty. My office is one where you will not be judged for your child's behaviors or problems because I know that is not helpful. We will work together to figure out how to support you and your child with evidence-based treatments and medications only as they are indicated. I also treat parents directly, particularly those who are struggling with the transition to parenthood or balancing the demands of parenthood with other responsibilities.

To college students and young adults: I am here to help you if you feel like your coping skills are failing you. There are so many things you can do to feel better that are safe and well-tolerated. There is no time like the present to address the factors limiting your potential.

Have you ever just wanted someone to get down to the root of your problems emotional, physically and spiritually? You know something is wrong but you just can't put your finger on it? If you have patterns of emotions and behavior that interfere in your relationships and dismantle your sense of self, I am able to sort out the pieces of the puzzle with you, put them together in a way that makes sense and help you to arrive at a place of peace and control over your life. I take patients who are serious about making changes - not just emotionally, but also physically and spiritually - and that have the courage, energy and investment in time to do the work.

Sometimes it is difficult and scary to make sense of feelings, learning how to manage them, and being able to find healthy ways to cope while creating and fostering self-awareness. Therapy is a safe space and a confidential grounding process that through time, consistency and working together will allow you to identify and develop a healthy voice to express thoughts and feelings. I strive to help clients understand their emotional conflicts, behavioral repetitions, and their inner-self by empathetically assisting them in working through emotional difficulties and life struggles. Feeling empowered in being proactive about our health and understanding the steps towards change is a powerful and vital process to feel seen and heard.
