I am a Board Certified Psychiatrist specializing in providing out-patient psychiatric care with an emphasis on psychotherapy to individuals and families.
I am passionate about using methods that utilize the brain’s inherent neuroplasticity to heal longstanding mental conditions and character traits that we used to believe were unalterable. I am very optimistic that people have the ability to heal and grow out of longstanding and seemingly intractable thought and feeling patterns.
For the suffering mind, I integratively treat problems of thinking, feeling and behaviour using cognitive growth practices including but not limited to Harvard psychologist Robert Kegan’s Immunity To Change Process and a clinical application of The Work of Byron Katie. For the body/brain, I offer medications, reccommendations on diet change, supplements, herbs, and acupuncture.
If medication is indicated for your situation I will offer what may work best for you. If elimination of medication is a desire and realistic possibility, I can offer you a safe way to come off of it. I will work with you where you presently are to help you end your own suffering.
