My Areas of Practice
I have 30 years of experience treating patients in a collegial and respectful manner.  My approach is to help people improve symptoms and conditions in a way that works for them.  I use a collaborative model, where appropriate, working with therapists in a team approach.  It is important to consider psychological issues and the psychosocial environment in which we function (family, work, school, relationships, personal and family health conditions).  In addition to general outpatient psychiatry, I have interests in complex diagnostic assessments, brain injury and disorders, medical illness, medical legal evaluation, and treatment of physicians and professionals.  My practice is limited to adult outpatient psychiatry.
