My Approach

My therapeutic approach is to combine best clinical practices in psychotherapy and psychopharmacology as informed by contemporary neuroscience. Rather than focusing on diagnosis and disease, I am oriented toward maximizing health and wellness. I try to help a person define and fulfill his or her potential in work and relationships, while achieving realistic goals and higher aims.

My approach is enriched by my background in English literature and the humanities as well as medicine.  I am a licensed psychoanalyst in addition to board-certified psychiatrist.  So, first and foremost, I try to keep you as a person in mind in best helping you to live and lead your life.
