I believe in an integrative approach to every patient. The fields of medicine and psychiatry are rapidly changing, as more physicians are acknowledging the accumulating research looking at nutritional interventions for psychiatric illness. The understanding of genetics, metabolism, and nutrition is now incorporated into mainstream medicine. I have devoted my career to educating her colleagues, clinicians, and patients on how integrative medicine can have profound effects on mental wellness and how to employ balanced, integrative strategies in the treatment mental illness.
My services include consultation and medication management. I work very closely with a number of therapists who I refer to if therapy is essential to your treatment.
I have experience treating a wide range of psychiatric illnesses ranging from eating disorder, anxiety, addiction and depression to bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. I will also treat teens 13 and up. I am specially licensed to prescribe Suboxone, Subutex and Buprenorphine for treatment of opioid dependence.
