Life is dif­fi­cult for every­one and it’s not uncom­mon for some­one to need sup­port, guid­ance, and some­times med­ica­tion to nav­i­gate through life’s chal­lenges at dif­fer­ent points in time. I am inter­est­ed in the treat­ment of the per­son as a whole. This includes hav­ing healthy, sup­port­ive per­sons in our life; get­ting enjoy­ment out of life/​improving one’s qual­i­ty of life, prop­er nutri­tion and exer­cise, as well as incor­po­rat­ing med­i­ta­tion and oth­er com­ple­men­tary treat­ments that will enhance a person’s treat­ment. Devel­op­ing a bal­anced life between work, fam­i­ly, friends and hobbies/​other activ­i­ties is also crucial.

The key to treat­ing any med­ical ill­ness, includ­ing men­tal health, large­ly involves lifestyle changes over the long term. There are also short-term needs that need to be met with the appro­pri­ate inten­si­ty lev­el of inter­ven­tions to meet the inten­si­ty lev­el of acute symp­toms. I work with my patients on both of these pre­sent­ing circumstances.

I also enjoy work­ing with peo­ple in indi­vid­ual psy­chother­a­py that are curi­ous about them­selves, seek bet­ter under­stand­ing about them­selves and that want to improve themselves.
