As a Board Certified psychiatrist for 25+ years,  my training in medical hypnosis,  psychotherapy, and medication management gives me the opportunity to do a thorough assessment of your physical health, emotional state, and social well being. Whether you are challenged by anxious or depressed feelings or a physical issue, an evaluation addressing your symptoms from a comprehensive perspective can help you make sense of your condition and give you information that leads to finding treatments that  works .

I have found that hypnosis as a treatment strategy can be particularly effective in resolving many medical issues, such as, IBS, chronic pain, smoking cessation, and weight control, preparation for surgeries, pregnancy delivery, and dental procedures.  Hypnotherapy can also be part of effective treatment for anxiety, phobias, and enhancing test performance.

My therapeutic style is active, collaborative, and solution focused.   We will have the option of utilizing a range of treatments including hypnosis, psychotherapy, or medication monitoring, depending on what suits your needs best.

I  have learned from my own experience to use crises as opportunities.  I can help you learn to use your presenting problems as opportunities for personal growth and healing as you become the person you want to be.
