Services offered include consultation, medication therapy, psychotherapy, and addictions services.

Consultation or assessment services are useful for addressing issues such as, "I feel like something is wrong, but I can't quite put my finger on what it is", "I've been feeling more and more depressed (or anxious), and its really starting to interfere with my daily routines", or "My spouse keeps complaining about my drinking. I don't think I have a problem, but am willing to get a second opinion." A consultation might also be useful simply as a second opinion regarding a course of treatment suggested by another practitioner.

Medications management is useful for those psychiatric and substance use conditions that benefit from the use of medications. Naturally, not all conditions to benefit from medications and many are best treated by combining the medication and other therapies. Hence, a careful and detailed assessment is essential before starting (or continuing) any course of medications. Individuals may already have therapists with whom they are comfortable, and I will coordinate care with those therapists upon request.

I do provide psychotherapy as part of an integrated treatment approach for individuals who do not currently have a therapist with whom they are comfortable. My own orientation is fairly eclectic, drawing on a wide range of traditions including self psychology, attachment theory, and current neuroscience among many.

Addictions services offered include assessment, outpatient treatment facilitation, psychotherapy, medication therapy including Suboxone (buprenorphine), and treatment of any co-occurring psychiatric conditions that may be present.
