When was the last time you felt well, felt happy, like your old self? When you had energy to get through the day, and you didn't worry all the time. When you did not feel hopeless about the future. When you could concentrate enough to read a book, and sleep soundly at night.
I want to help you get your life back! I have a decade of experience in helping people overcome depression, anxiety, past trauma, and ADHD. In my practice there is no 'off the shelf' treatment plan; we make a unique plan for each individual. I have extensive training in the medication-based treatment of mental illnesses. I also empower my patients to learn healthy ways to cope with their stress through therapy. The patients being an equal partner in their recovery leads to lasting change.
I have worked in a variety of clinical settings including inpatient, outpatient, emergency rooms, forensics/jails, and consultative services. I completed most of my medical training in Chicago, including my psychiatric residency at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Chicago. I am Board Certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
I use a holistic and individualized approach. My goal is not to just prescribe medications or prescribe medications forever, but is rather to be a health partner and guide to optimize well-being.
In addition to being a psychiatrist, I am a father, an entrepreneur, a sports fan, a traveler, a life enthusiast.
