Practice Philosophy

Evidence based psychiatry is central to her practice. She strives to listen to patients without distraction in order to best understand their perspective and situation. Warm, compassionate care is imperative to effective treatment. Occasionally, compassionate care means disagreeing in ways that help patients grow. Working closely with primary care doctors and therapists is an important part of good comprehensive care.
