I provide comprehensive diagnostic assessments, treatment consultations and ongoing treatment of adult paychiatric disorders, relationship problems and problems of living. Specific areas of clinical practice include depressive and bipolar spectrum disorders, anxiety disorders, emotional responses ot chronic illness and life management concerns of the LGBT community.
The models of treatment I use vary and include:
Brief and problem focused individual psychotherapy with and without concurrent medication, as needed.
Medication consultation and medication management of psychiatric disorders without individual psychotherapy.
Integrative, insight-oriented individual psychotherapy with focus on understanding developmental and life experience events in a way that facilitates progress toward a greater self-awareness and emotionally healthy relationships with others.
I am Board Certified in Psychiatry and a Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. I completed my medical education at Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine and my psychiatric residency training at Northwestern University School of Medicine in Chicago.
