About

Bio

Emphasizing mindfulness, self-awareness, and compassion, I'm a board-certified psychiatrist and executive coach in Scottsdale, AZ. My private medical practice provides natural healing options for adults dealing with depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress. In addition to many years as an academic psychiatrist, I've also formally studied and practiced Classical Homeopathy since 1999. A graduate of Dr. Andrew Weil's Fellowship in Integrative Medicine, I'm board certified in Integrative and Holistic Medicine. As a certified Executive Coach, I help physicians prevent burnout on individual, team, organizational, and national levels. Burnout can be a transformation point where physicians reconfigure their lives in healthy, wholehearted ways -- leading to better health for all.

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.
