Practices In: Naperville, Romeoville
Patients Seen: Adults

I strong­ly believe in a holis­tic approach towards my patients, which includes col­lab­o­ra­tion with not only with the fam­i­ly but with the pri­ma­ry care physi­cian as well. I feel that men­tal health is strong­ly relat­ed to on going med­ical issues and requires immense atten­tion to improve the health of my patients. I believe in main­tain­ing strong rap­port with my patients to cul­ti­vate pos­i­tive behav­ioral changes and moti­vate them to lead a bet­ter life.

Behav­ioral & Men­tal Health insur­ance cov­er­age varies by provider.
