I am dual board certified psychiatrist in Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatry who is comprehensibly trained in all mood, anxiety and cognitive disorders. I have an interest in working with individuals who have Selective Mutism, Social Anxiety and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. I have a passion for empowering women, children, and diverse cultural groups. I specialize in working with college youth, transitional age youth and LGBTQQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, queer, intersex, asexual) youth.
I use an eclectic style of therapy that is based on principles of psychodynamic therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, play therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. I also provide family-focused therapy for families with Schizophrenia and Bipolar Mood Disorder. I use psychopharmacological treatment when it is indicated and abide by practice parameters of the APA and AACAP.
