  • My Philosophy

    Counseling and medication may help.

    I see people's individuality and the multi-dimensional origins of distress. Life doesn't have to be riddled with anxiety, mood swings, difficult interpersonal conflict, etc. I provide highly personalized care using a variety of methods, depending on your unique situation. Developing positive healthy attributes including nutrition, diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes can dramatically affect your well-being. My approach may include; laboratory tests, medications, psychotherapy, or psychological treatment, depending on your particular situation. We work together as a team for your optimal treatment.
