Treatment

"It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure."

- Joseph Campbell

I believe in using an open-minded and inclusive approach to psychiatry that builds trust, collaboration and a strong alliance with my patients. I use innovative, cutting-edge, and evidence-based biological approaches to treating mental illness including medications, nutritional supplements, bright light therapy and behavioral modification. I always encourage my patients to consider healthy lifestyle interventions including dietary changes and aerobic exercise. In addition to improving my patients' biological well being, I work with them to improve their psychological well-being. I am trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy, existential therapy, CBT, IPT, DBT, MI and other forms of psychotherapy, and offer individual and couples' therapy appointments. As I strongly believe sustained personal change comes from psychotherapy, I am happy to assist you in finding the right therapist, whether it's me or someone else.
