About

Bio

I currently have a practice in general counseling and medication management for adults with depression, anxiety, and ADHD. I am also a certified sexuality counselor. I have been a specialist in preventive medicine since 1987 and have experience in primary care and clinical preventive medicine. I also assist people with weight management, smoking cessation, and stress management.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
