Preguntas // Questions

  • Do you take insurance?

​I am just starting up and am in the process of being credentialed on several insurance panels. ​

  • What is your approach to therapy?

Fundamentally, I see treatment as a collaboration where your goals and preferences guide what kind of therapy we do. I have advanced training and clinical experience in psychodynamic psychotherapy, CBT, and DBT and am happy to help you think through what approach would be the most helpful.

  • Don't psychiatrists prescribe medications, not do therapy?

This is a great question! All psychiatrists are trained to prescribe medication, and depending on their interests and training some psychiatrists primarily focus on therapy. I appreciate the role of medications and do prescribe them when needed, but the primary focus of my practice is therapy.
