- Medication Management
I'm a UW-faculty member & board-certified psychiatrist (MD) at West Coast Psychiatry w/ >10 yrs experience in healthcare.
Psychiatrist in Bellevue, WA
Treating OCD is a strong area of clinical interest and expertise for me. I love working with patients with OCD because it is a diagnosis that is often missed for years. By accurately diagnosing it, I can help patients begin to take control back from OCD so they can live their lives more authentically on their terms. I am confident with the evidence-based treatments for OCD whether we use medications and/or therapy and have received training in ERP (exposure and ritual prevention) and ACT.
A large proportion of my practice is treating the various types of anxiety that we have. In working with me to treat your anxiety, you will find an educator, a collaborator, and a steady hand to guide you through the process, building you into your own therapist over time. If medications are used, they are used in a judicious, targeted, thoughtful manner.
Whether therapy and/or medications are used, my job is to work together to find the care that aligns with your values and is likely to help you get back to being the full you. I am well-versed in various psychotherapies, including the more structured, action and skill oriented Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), supportive therapy, motivational interviewing, ACT, and interpersonal therapy, among others. I look forward to sharing my expertise with you.
