As a psychiatrist, my job is to be a good doctor first. My work focuses on helping us become aware of your medical issues that can lead to depression, anxiety, impulsiveness, or other difficulties. And with that knowledge and correction of those medical issues, help you achieve health. While there are many well-qualified therapists in my office and on this website, my job and passion is to help you find the most effective and safest biologic support to return you to emotional health and prevent future difficulties. As a psychiatrist, I focus on listening to both the words you are saying and the messages your body is conveying. I focus not only on addressing the clear signs of suffering such as tearfulness and panic, but also the hidden suffering of feeling little joy or being overwhelmed.Read more
