If you feel stuck repeating ineffective actions in your life without making meaningful changes despite your best efforts, I may be able to help by working with you to understand what seems to be getting in the way. With this understanding, I find that people over time find solutions that seem right for them.  

  

I think an accepting stance is important in relationships, and I welcome patients from all backgrounds. While I work effectively towards a wide variety of treatment goals, I find I am most helpful for people interested in understanding the deeper origins of recurring life problems.  I use an integrative approach which combines psychotherapy, practical self-care (nutrition, exercise, sleep, etc.), and judicious use of psychotropic medications. 

I also am an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Vanderbilt and teach psychotherapy to psychiatry residents at various levels of training.

Office visits are by appointment only.  I do not provide emergent and/or walk-in new patient psychiatric assessments or treatment. If you have a medical or psychiatric emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
