Information for Patients

Description of My Practice

Bodily imbalance can cause or worsen psychiatric symptoms, & medication may not work well under these circumstances, so if necessary, I look at gut functioning, high toxin load, food sensitivities, nutrient deficiencies, infections, or hormone imbalances to get my patients to a state of well-being, not just having fewer or less severe symptoms.

From the practitioner: About My Practice

Since completing my functional medicine training through IFM in 2014, I've attended innumerable conferences, workshops, courses, lectures, and trainings to broaden and deepen my knowledge of alternative methods to optimize mental health. In the last few years, I've obtained in-depth training on hormone balancing with bioidential hormone therapy, and find that I particularly enjoy helping people with depression, anxiety, insomnia, and changes in cognition whose symptoms can be alleviated by replacing low levels of reproductive hormones or by addressing other hormonal imbalances, such as hypothyroidism, which very few psychiatrists or even endocrinologists know how to treat adequately.

From the practitioner: What Patients Can Expect

Though I'm highly trained in holistic medicine, I'm still expert in prescribing psychotropic medication when necessary. When people first see me, they've often had symptoms for weeks to months or longer, and the symptoms have become severe to the point that they need immediate relief from panic attacks, incapacitating insomnia, or depression, which if not quickly alleviated, could result in getting kicked out of school or losing a job.

In order to look thoroughly & deeply at the cause of your challenges, I collaborate closely with patients, primary care physicians, and therapists. I keep my practice small, allowing me to spend enough time with you to come up with a multi-pronged treatment plan and to provide comprehensive support.
