Practice Philosophy

The practice of psychiatry relates to the art and science of helping people to care for people's emotional, psychological and social issues. I provide psychotherapy and/or psychopharmacology to individuals depending on their psychiatric conditions, wishes, and needs.

I specialize in forensic psychiatry, which involves the interface between psychiatry and the law. I perform evaluations of individuals related to civil issues and criminal issues.
