Focus of Work


I am both a general and a child/adolescent psychiatrist. I am interested in treating mood disorders in children and adults, especially bipolar disorder. I emphasize medication management coupled with psychotherapy. I also treat ADHD; it has a high frequency as a comorbidity with mood disorders.
