I am a physician certified in Adult, Adolescent, & Child Psychiatry and in practice for over 20 years. Whether struggling with life-long emotional concerns or in need of brief, focused care, I offer a supportive environment to help. My practice combines counseling, innovative therapeutic techniques (EMDR, Motivational Interviewing, ACT) & medication management. A balanced & individualized approach is especially important when working with the behavioral, social or emotional challenges in children and adolescents. People seek out my help for many reasons. Whatever yours may be, I offer a warm, professional environment for you, your child and your family to heal and grow.
Specialty Areas --ADHD, ADD, Bipolar, PostTraumatic Stress Disorder, Acute Stress Disorder, Phobias; Developmental Therapies-Sensorimotor, EMDR, ACT. Training in psychodynamic psychotherapy, individual, family; Sexual Disorders; University of Maryland @ Baltimore; EMDR, ACT, also Sensorimotor.
Unfortunately, I do not bill insurance directly, or participate in Medicare, Medicaid or any insurance panels, due to onerous delays, restrictions on treatment, length of sessions, pre-authorization requirements, reviews overseen by non-physicians, or non practicing physicians, not Board Certified Psychiatrists; violations of patient confidentiality, etc. Although I do not bill insurance directly, I provide a super-bill, which allows patients to send to their insurance for partial or full reimbursement.
