Welcome

Comprehensive Treatment of Anxiety Disorders

I am a board-certified adult psychiatrist on faculty at The Johns Hopkins University and in private practice in the Mount Washington neighborhood of Baltimore, MD.  I offer careful and comprehensive psychiatric care, including case formulation, psychotherapy, and–when indicated–pharmacotherapy to adults who struggle with anxiety.  In psychotherapy, I employ various forms of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), especially exposure-based therapies such as Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP).  I also draw heavily from TEAM-CBT, Acceptance and Committment Therapy (ACT), and compassion-based psychotherapies.  These evidence-based psychotherapies are time-limited and require homework between sessions in order to be effective.  Our sessions will include time for you to be heard and understood, as well as time for us to work together actively to overcome the problems that brought you into therapy.  I aim not only to assist you in recovery from your struggles with anxiety, but beyond that to support you in building a rich, fulfilling life.
