My Approach


My approach is integrative, a patient-centered model that considers evidence-based pharmaceutical treatments as well as sociocultural factors, mind-body medicine, and preventative measures.  I practice trauma informed care

 I aim to use minimal amounts of medication, for the shortest amount of time possible, with a focus on safely discontinuing and tapering medications when able.

My goal is to get you better, and back to living your life. 

My medical background and training allows me to recognize medical influences affecting one’s mental health. Integration includes consideration of inflammatory, nutritional and lifestyle influences on mental health. I have an open minded approach,  considering developmental and traumatic exposures. I consider emerging, evidence based treatments.
