How I can help



My practice has shifted toward doing more psychotherapy  because I feel that the field of  psychiatry became too medication focused.  Psychotropic medicine can certainly  be of help but it is also important to have the life that one wants.  I  will listen intently to  try to understand what it feels like to be you.  I may suggest medication, psychotherapy or a combination of the two.  I am also skilled at treating patients with psychiatric illness that may have been brought on by a medical condition such as Diabetes or Coronary Artery Disease.   While I have significant experience in treating addiction,  I am not able to take on patients who are actively abusing substances. 

**In late 2016  I seemed to be getting more calls for short and long term disability evaluations.   Some major corporations are now requiring that a psychiatrist opine if an employee has been out for more than thirty days. While I will support any  one  of my active patients  who may need to go out on a short or a long term disability,  I am unable to provide disability evaluations for unestablished or  new"  patients.  This is due in part because  it is very difficult to evaluate a situation based on one  or two visits.


I can usually schedule within one week of an initial phone contact.
