I specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of significant psychological and psychiatric disturbances in children, adolescents, and adults. Problems with ADD, ADHD, Gender Dysphoria, Major Depression, Borderline Personality Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, Substance Abuse, Eating Disorders, Conduct Disorder, Psychosis and Schizophrenia are frequently encountered and treated.
My primary objective in working with children, adolescents and adults is to accurately assess whatever challenges are being faced and address them as quickly and sympathetically as possible.
I employ whatever means necessary to help my patients by utilizing psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, behavioral modification, meditation, integrative medicine and holistic medicine. I prescribe medication only when necessary and patients generally feel comfortable and at ease with my approach.
I am always available for FaceTime/phone appointments as well as Skype. Additionally, I have a Concierge Program for individuals that desire or require a more intensive therapeutic experience.
