Behavioral & Mental Health, Integrative Medicine, Psychiatry

Practices In: Romeoville
Patients Seen: Adolescents and Adults

My approach is holis­tic, inclu­sive and non-judg­men­tal where every­one has a voice in their recov­ery and con­ti­nu­ity of care. The patient and fam­i­ly are a inte­gral part in the path of recovery.

Behav­ioral & Men­tal Health insur­ance cov­er­age varies by provider.

Pri­or to sched­ul­ing with a Behav­ioral & Men­tal Health (IPD) provider, please con­firm with your insur­ance car­ri­er that this provider is con­sid­ered in-net­­work and cov­ered by your insur­ance plan.
