Overview

The road to health is a journey that is yours. It is like going on Safari. A Safari can be exciting, but at times scary and one never quite knows what will happen next, but when going on Safari it is good to have a guide. I, as your doctor, will serve as your guide. In Private Practice since 1989, I’ve been on many “Safaris” or journeys with many patients, and so I have an idea as to what to expect, but each person’s journey is their own. I am here to make sure that you will be safe in your journey inward to get beneath the surface to find out what is the driver of your present troubles. I like to take an integrative approach to understanding my patients. This means that I need to know everything about you that includes your life story from the beginning to the present, as well as a thorough understanding of your medical status including a recent physical from your own primary care doctor, and results of lab work that I will order on your first visit. Your medical status, your life history, and your present troubles are very interwoven–each effects the other. So I need to understand all of this to be helpful to you.

As a Psychiatrist and Psychoanalyst, I have completed 4 years of medical school, 1 year of Fifth Pathway which is like a rotating internship, 1 year of Internship in Internal Medicine, 3 years of Residency in Adult Psychiatry, 2 years of Specialty Fellowship Training in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry with an emphasis in Mother-Infant Relationships, and 5 years Training in Psychoanalysis for Adults and Children. This has prepared me to have a clear understanding of how your medical status, your genetic background, and your family upbringing play a part in your your mental health, physical health, and relationships with others.
