The focus of my practice is the evaluation and treatment of psychiatric disorders in adult patients including, but not limited to, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. While I have a long-standing interest in psychopharmacology and feel strongly that its appropriate use in the treatment of disorders such as depression is potentially life-saving, I have an equally strong belief that psychotherapy in its various forms can serve a potent adjunctive and synergistic role in optimizing the value of psychiatry as a medical specialty. My primary professional goal is to integrate these two treatment modalities in a way that goes beyond just the relief of symptoms to provide a foundation for identifying and analyzing the basis for one's psychological distress.
