Welcome to my website! My life work is helping people achieve their full human potential. Life should be rewarding on every level, including physically, socially, psychologically and spiritually. Believing that informed self-awareness is the true path to a healthy and satisfying life, my focus is supporting patients in their journey to understanding the many factors that make them who they are.
Although I help people with all manner of psychiatric challenges, I specialize in treating addiction. Addiction is among life’s most difficult challenges and it is not something anyone willingly chooses. It’s never too late to seek help, however: Addiction is highly treatable. If you or someone you care about is suffering, I am here to provide treatment and support along the path to recovery.

My treatment approach is unique and personalized to fit the needs of each patient.

Where mainstream medicine relies (exclusively) on evidence-based science and focuses on treating symptoms, integrative physicians also utilize many other disciplines (also science-based and heavily researched) to treat the whole person. Our tools include nutrition, exercise and lifestyle change; plants and herbs; vitamins and supplements; and spirituality to help each patient become as healthy as possible.
The principles of integrative medicine, as taught by Dr. Weil and other specialists, are:
