Psychiatric Nurse, MSN, CRNP, CNS
"We often come into our personal behaviors, thoughts, & feelings because they have helped us survive our own anxieties. As adults, often habitual patterns of behavior inhibit us from growing into the effective human beings we expect ourselves to become. Freedom, in its broadest sense, can be limited, depending on our own thought patterns, emotions, and our personal responses/reactions to our emotions. Together, we can look at patterns of behavior, private thoughts and feelings with empathy and without judgment. We can explore how freedom of thought and emotional reactivity can help you achieve your personal goals of actualization."

"As a psychiatrist, I see my profession as helping people by understanding what they are suffering from (diagnosis) and finding the most appropriate treatment, through psychotherapy and/or medication management. My experience ranges from severe mental illness to traumatic experiences that affect ability to function, to troubles of everyday living such as interpersonal difficulties, grief, divorce and infertility/adoption issues. I provide long-term therapy for self-exploration, emotional development, and changing complex personality patterns that can make everyday life difficult or therapy of shorter duration focused on specific problems. The general modality of therapy is psychodynamic."
"The unique nature of my practice and approach to therapy stem from my medical training and advanced training in insight-oriented psychotherapy. Although I have a strong background in psychiatric diagnosis and medical management, I believe strongly in a holistic approach to therapy."

"I have been in the private practice of psychodynamic psychiatry for over three decades. I provide a safe, warm and trusting environment in which you can discuss your deepest concerns and feel that you are being listened to and truly heard. Together we would work to understand the conflictual issues that are contributing to your difficulties and that are preventing you from achieving your goals in your interpersonal, occupational and academic life. I would prescribe medication only if and when indicated as an adjunt to your psychotherapy."
"I believe listening - and being truly heard - is one of the most powerful therapeutic experiences. We are social beings, and if we have become isolated, or feel misunderstood, even ignored, we suffer deeply. I bring a high level of attentiveness to my work as a psychiatrist that provides the crucial foundation on which true growth and change can occur. I want to hear your story, to understand how your suffering, whatever its form, has come to be in the present day."
"My patients live and work in a global environment with complicated interpersonal problems compounded by economic, political, cultural and religious pressures. Through extensive education, experience and world travel I have built the capacity to provide a neutral, private and safe environment permitting the pursuit of solutions for acute mental health problems as well as longer term, intensive psychoanalytic treatment. I am a board certified psychiatrist with a medical degree from University of Southern California. As a psychoanalyst I completed the curriculum and treatment of cases through the Baltimore-Washington Institute for Psychoanalysis under the auspices of the American Psychoanalytic Association."

"Overwhelmed? Frustrated with people in your life? Trouble at school, work or home? Change can happen. I see adolescents, adults and couples. I'm direct, open, collaborative. My style is eclectic, practical and problem-solving. I prescribe anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications when indicated. Psychotherapy is a two-way street. It begins with a consultation, when together we clarify what's troubling you. During that first encounter, we road-test our compatibility as communicators and collaborators. In psycho-therapy, "one size" does not fit all. You should meet more than one clinician before deciding whom to work with."

"My approach is to work in collaboration with a person in order to learn how to step back and explore one’s thoughts and feelings in a non-judgmental way. I have seen how beneficial it can be for a person to become less critical of oneself. Most people think this kind of work on themselves is a major investment in their quality of life. When a person has the opportunity to explore internal conflicts, it can give them greater freedom to be more creative and enjoy life and relationships."
