Living life can be surprisingly frustrating and unsettling - at times overwhelming one’s ability to cope with setbacks and enjoy life. Working collaboratively, we can identify your priorities and challenges. I can help you build resiliency, understand yourself better, and acquire new life skills. I bring to our work together my experience in using different therapeutic strategies, prescribing medication when indicated, and integrating lifestyle changes. My background in internal medicine enables me to work with you on problems presented by ongoing, chronic medical conditions.
