Care Philosophy

I am a psychiatrist/psychotherapist providing timely, compassionate, comprehensive and confidential mental health treatment. I've been fortunate to have helped hundreds of people in Kentucky for over 15 years as they've struggled with all kinds of emotional and psychological issues. These have ranged from depression to dementia, bipolar disorder to schizophrenia and addiction to anxiety, to name a few. I've also helped people struggling with life's many questions that had left them feeling incapacitated, anxious & distraught.

I offer services that are evidence-based, balanced and holistic providing psychotherapy, guidance, support and if necessary medications. My aim is to help you with a personalized treatment plan that you are in control of and completely comfortable with. Most people find it difficult to make it to doctor's appointments during regular business hours. I'm available evenings and weekends so that your personal schedule is not disrupted.
