About Me

My focus:
Women’s mental health (prenatal, postpartum, perimenopause, menopausal), depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar disorder, ADHD

We all tend to seek help when what we are doing is no longer working, or we feel stuck, dissatisfied or our life is out of control, or someone we care about says that we should get help. I view these pivotal moments as potential moments of alchemy, if we are willing to be mindful with what is, staying with our experience and working through it. Remaining mindFUL allows the experience to teach us what we are supposed to learn, if we are open to it. And as we choose to be mindful of the current portal, presented in our lives as “a problem or failure”, we allow alchemy to take place. I feel honored and privileged to be present with you during these pivotal moments of transformation, as many times it is very hard do it alone. I am here to support you.

I am a board certified family medicine physician and psychiatrist. I have practiced in different clinical settings and have worked with patients from all stages of life. I am also a yoga instructor and enjoy practicing and teaching yoga. I have trained in different psychotherapeutic modalities that I incorporate when I work with patients, along with  providing psychiatric medications, lifestyle (nutrition, exercise, sleep, interpersonal relationships, spirituality) interventions aimed at aligning the mind and the body together for optimal healing and function. Who doesn’t want to be the best version of themselves? And if not, why?
