CURRENT WAIT TIME FOR NEW PATIENTS: 1 WEEK. An individualized treatment is essential in treating mental health concerns, and I listen to my patients to help them identify their needs and preferences. I am trained in both approaches, and can help people with a variety of needs, such as mood problems, anxiety, grief, trauma, relationship difficulties, life transitions, and self-discovery. In my treatment approach I emphasize how physical and mental health complement each other. Through understanding social, cultural, psychological and biological aspects of one's mental health, I provide a comprehensive treatment to my patients. I trained in psychiatry and psychotherapy at the University of Virginia, where I also served as a chief resident. I am board certified in Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, working in Seattle. I am also a clinical instructor at UW. I sometimes use genetic testing to help patients choose the best treatment as well. Even though I am out-of-network for insurances, in many cases the difference between my fees and the reimbursement from your insurance (paid directly to the you by them) is equivalent to what you would pay for a co-pay if you saw a doctor who takes your insurance.
