About Us

path to wellness

Our philosophy is quite simple:

We strive to help you find relief from the excessive worry, anxiety and despair that can drain your energy…rob you of motivation…and otherwise manifest itself in your life in negative ways.

We understand your struggle – and your desire to have things be different.

Whether you’ve been in treatment before or are simply at a point where you’re ready for change, we welcome you to our practice.

We believe in an evidence-based approach to psychotherapy and, in some cases, genetic testing to help identify appropriate medications. Unlike some physicians and psychiatrists, you’ll find that we are open to the use of newer psychiatric medications that are beginning to show promise for patients. Finally, we commit to spending as much time as necessary to help you get on a path to wellness, relying on our years of experience to guide and support you on your journey.
