The practice of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, as well as Adult Psychiatry, is as exciting as it is varied.
This specialty is truly one of the last bastions in modern medicine that allows the practitioner to 'connect' with the patient, and one where the value of the patient's input is not underestimated.

Understanding the impact of one's life experiences, and the interaction with a person's biology and temperament is an art that few have the opportunity to practice on a routine basis. A careful evaluation can reveal several areas of focus for medication and therapy during the treatment of the individual.It is this art that defines the profession of Psychiatry - especially Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
My clinical interests include childhood and adolescent depression, other mood disorders, ADHD, child and adolescent anxiety disorders such as OCD, and post traumatic stress disorder. I also work with adults.
