In my clinical practice I take a collaborative, pro-active approach to helping people overcome difficult life problems and circumstances.  I work primarily from a cognitive-behavioral perspective, but sometimes also incorporate a number of other related, empirically supported approaches including elements of dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), schema therapy, mindfulness meditation and even yoga.  My work is always tailored to the individual and my patients are my most important collaborators in their own journey toward health.  I do not believe that pills are the answer to every problem (indeed, sometimes they are the problem), but I do believe that medication can have a useful role to play for some people and in some disorders, and I work closely with several wonderful psychiatrists who can provide medication consults to interested patients.
