As a physician and psychiatrist, I believe in the treatment of a person as a whole. My evaluation and treatment plan strongly consider the developmental process and the life events that have shaped a person.

I am board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in Psychiatry and Addiction Psychiatry. I obtained my subspecialist training in Addiction Psychiatry at UCLA in Los Angeles, working at Cedar Sinai Medical Center and the West Los Angeles Veterans Administration Hospital. I completed my psychiatric residency training at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. I obtained my medical degree from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed my undergraduate studies in Psychology at Michigan State University. I specialize in the diagnosis and pharmacologic management of psychiatric illnesses. Guided by the principles of evidence-based medicine, I treat a broad range of psychiatric disorders including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, OCD, PTSD, and adult ADHD.

During your first meeting, I will provide an in-depth evaluation to develop an accurate diagnosis. With expert training in both psychopharmacology and psychotherapy, I will work with you to individualize your treatment plan to best suit your needs.
