I am a board certified psychiatrist with over 10 years of experience in treating adults with mood and anxiety disorders, difficulty with adjusting to life stressors, and expertise in treating individuals with eating disorders and addictions. I also have board certification in psychosomatic medicine, which is the branch of psychiatry that focuses on how the mind and body interact in illness and in stress.
My goal in working with patients is to listen and connect, helping to guide effective treatment which is both evidence-based as well as in line with the values of the patient.
I provide both medication management and psychotherapy. I often work with patients who are already in therapy and need a provider to manage medications. I also provide psychotherapy, with a particular interest treatment of anxiety disorders, mood disorders, life transitions and changes, and issues around pregnancy, infertility, and postpartum.
I have worked in the residential and PHP level of care for several major treatment centers including one where I previously worked with Dr. Kim. Treating complex co-occurring disorders is my specialty.
