About Me

My primary treatment focus is to make my client's mental health a priority. I prescribe psychotropic medication combined with education and therapy to treat and manage symptoms of emotional distress such as depression, anxiety, mood, grief, fear, insomnia and inattention. I believe that psychiatric medication in combination with therapy is an invaluable tool to help reach personal recovery. In practical application this means helping you feel better!

I am often described as a very friendly, direct, down to earth, and funny. While you are in my care I help my clients explore their concerns to make sure I am providing the proper treatment. It is very rewarding to see people become free from symptoms of distress they felt obliged to carry.
