About

Bio

I am a Board-Certified Psychiatrist in private practice specializing in the treatment of general adult and addiction disorders experienced in treating mood disorders, anxiety, ADHD, psychosis, and substance abuse.

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.
