I am a board cer­ti­fied psy­chi­a­trist and my areas of inter­est are eat­ing dis­or­ders as well as mood and anx­i­ety dis­or­ders. I approach psy­chi­a­try with the phi­los­o­phy that men­tal ill­ness­es has bio­chem­i­cal, psy­cho­log­i­cal and social com­po­nents. My belief is that in order to treat men­tal health ill­ness, one needs to incor­po­rate a col­lab­o­ra­tive team approach. The team often will often include a psy­chi­a­trist, ther­a­pist, PCP, nurse, case man­ag­er and dietit­ian. I strong­ly believe that peo­ple with men­tal health issues deserve to and can have great improve­ment in qual­i­ty of life. I am cre­ative in man­ag­ing psy­chi­atric med­ica­tions. I see med­ica­tions as a piece of a puz­zle in help­ing one achieve emo­tion­al well­ness. If med­ica­tions can help reduce anx­i­ety and depres­sion, one will be more mind­ful and present in ther­a­py. This will allow ther­a­py to be more pro­duc­tive in help­ing you improve your men­tal health.
