About

Bio

Board certified in psychiatry, I provide medication evaluation and management. I am experienced in both psychodynamic psychotherapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. I also provide group and couples therapy services. Comfortable treating a wide range of psychiatric issues, I also provide services to professionals and executives (physicians, executives, lawyers, etc) understanding the unique stresses and challenges professionals and executives face.

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.
