I am trained in both Gottman style couples therapy and CBT for couples. I have experience working with individuals in poly and non-monogamous relationships as well. I'll bring this expertise to working with you to help improve communication and reconnection with your partner/partners.
I am trained in Exposure and Response Prevention therapy, which is the gold standard for treating OCD. Additionally I have expertise in prescribing for OCD. Most patients do best with a combination of therapy and medications.

Psychodynamic therapy explores underlying emotional issues that may impact mental health. It aims to foster understanding and awareness of root causes, leading to insight and lasting change. By exploring unconscious thoughts and feelings, it helps individuals develop self-awareness, self-esteem, and a path towards growth and healing.
CBT can be used to help treat a range of problems including sleep, anxiety, depression, and trauma. The foundation of CBT is helping you understand the way that thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations are connected and how changing one can help change the others.
Exposure and response prevention (ERP) is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) that is often used to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). ERP involves gradually exposing patients to situations or stimuli that trigger their obsessions, while helping them resist the urge to engage in compulsive behaviors. Over time, this process can help individuals develop greater control over their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
As a psychiatrist, I offer medication management services designed to help you achieve optimal mental health. By working together, we can identify the right medications for you and monitor them. I understand that medication can be a sensitive issue for many people, and I strive to create a safe and supportive environment where you can feel comfortable discussing your concerns and needs. Whether you're struggling with anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues, I am here to help.
Person-Centered therapy is a type of therapy that aims to help clients develop a greater sense of self-awareness and self-esteem. The therapist works with clients to identify and build upon their existing strengths and resources, while also providing guidance and support to navigate challenging situations. This approach can be particularly helpful for individuals struggling with stress, anxiety, or depression.
