As a physician with board certifications in both Adult and Child psychiatry, I provide diagnostic assessments, medication management, and psychotherapy for children, adolescents, and adults between the ages of 3 and 60. My goal is to empower you, your child, and your family to live the most enriching life possible.
I implement an integrative treatment plan that may involve collaboration with therapists, primary care physicians, nutritionists, family therapists, and, for children, educational therapists and teachers. I am particularly open to integrative medicine and welcome concurrent use of acupuncture, herbal medicine, naturopathy, and mindfulness-based practices. My goal in medication management is to always utilize the lowest effective medication dosages and focus on augmentation strategies involving lifestyle management and other therapies. I welcome the opportunity to assist you in achieving a more balanced, enriched life.
My initial consultations are generally 120 minutes long for children and adolescents, and 90 minutes long for adults. Follow-up appointments are generally 25 minutes, but may be scheduled as 50 minute sessions for more complex patients.
I do offer school-based consultations and evaluations when indicated as part of the comprehensive treatment plan, and always welcome and encourage communication between myself and teachers/school counselors.
