My Areas of Practice

general adult psychiatry, geriatric psychiatry

I practice general adult psychiatry which includes depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar illness and many other problems. I am also subspecialty trained in geriatric psychiatry, which includes assessment of memory problems. I like to make sure patients understand the assessment and treatment process and encourage patient involvement and questions in that process.
