As a psychiatrist, I am trained to assess emotional issues from both a psychological and medical perspective.  If you wish and only with your consent, I will collaborate with your other medical doctors, prior mental health professionals, and/or personal support system to ensure the safest treatment approach for you.

Choosing a therapist is a first important step in your path to improved emotional and mental health.  It is important that you feel comfortable with and have trust in your therapist; sometimes this can be known in a first session though often it takes a few sessions to know whether the 'fit' is right for you.  If we choose to work together, we will do so in a collaborative way.
