Life is far from perfect. Everyone experiences loss, unforeseen change, and anxiety provoking stress. When these stresses become so powerful that they interfere with our work, self-care, or relationships, it is important to remember that we are not alone and help is available. With bravery, you can seek help and begin to heal. My goal is to help those who are facing these difficulties. I received my psychiatric training at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Adult Psychiatry. With this experience, I am able to diagnose and treat a broad range of psychiatric illnesses, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.
Although diagnosing a psychiatric illness is helpful to determine if medication is appropriate, developing a deeper understanding of a person, their life experiences, personality, and routine behaviors is essential for comprehensive treatment.
With acceptance and listening, I develop an understanding that goes beyond a diagnosis and work towards an individualized treatment.
