My approach to psychiatry is to offer support to every individual according to their needs and goals. As we grow and develop, we often notice changes in our social relationships, and major life transitions can be a bumpy time. Adolescence is by definition a time of great change, of changes in brain development and a period of adjustment to changes in roles and expectations. It is a profoundly creative time, and I am thrilled to be able to help adolescents and young adults through this transition period.
