ABOUT

We are all complicated and our lives and stories make us who we are today. I believe that being in therapy is a chance to look at ourselves and adjust how we approach opportunities and explore what is getting in the way of our success and gratification. I am a psychiatrist who prefers to work with patients more frequently and more deeply than just prescribing medications. When people ask me what I specialize in I try and explain that my specialty as a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst is my approach. The technique is to work together and explore what brings you to treatment and then as our relationship develops, it is possible the goals will change, the so called diagnosis may shift, and we may move in a new direction. It is a dynamic process and we both must remain open and curious. The approach of looking deeper can help with more than just having less symptoms, it enables real personality, behavior, and life changes.
