Message to clients

The world can be a difficult place, and my calling is to help by getting to know you as a human being with a story. I specialize in child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry — I treat a wide range of ages and difficulties. There are times when the careful use of medication may be helpful and even life-saving — and medication may not always address the needs of the whole person. I can also help you write and rewrite your story with an integration of compassion, common sense, and years of training in a variety of evidence-based psychotherapies. For comprehensive evaluations, consultations, and ongoing treatment, please reach out. I look forward to learning more about you.
