About Me

Summary

Seattle psychiatrist in private practice focusing on anxiety disorders, depression, and ADHD.

About Me

A Texas native, I completed my MD degree at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) School of Medicine at Galveston, then continued my training at UTMB Hospitals for my Psychiatry residency. Subsequently, I moved to Portland, Maine to complete my Child Psychiatry fellowship at Maine Medical Center.

After residency and fellowship training, my first position was a Staff Psychiatrist at Counseling Services Inc., a community mental health provider with multiple offices in rural Maine, and also consulted to Southern Maine Medical Center in Biddeford, Maine. After one year in community mental health, I joined Maine Medical Center as an Attending Psychiatrist in Portland, and concurrently was appointed as a Clinical Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Vermont College of Medicine in Burlington.

After three years at Maine Medical Center, I was subsequently recruited as an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Dalhousie University Department of Psychiatry, and concurrently as an Attending Psychiatrist at IWK Health Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. I also maintained a private practice in Halifax, in addition to the research and clinical positions.

Throughout my fifteen-year psychiatry career, I have focused on anxiety disorders, depression, and ADHD, as well as future trends in psychiatry. However, I have extensive experience and expertise in treating severe mental illness such as psychosis, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. I have written and presented extensively on the topics of anxiety, depression, ADHD, psychosis, and psychopharmacology. To date, I have thirty-four publications and have been awarded six research grants.

I am the founder of AnxietyBoss.com, a popular anxiety website which has reached over four million viewers, and author of Anxiety Protocol, an anxiety self-help book. I am currently upskilling as a Data Scientist as a graduate student in the MSc in Computing and Data Analytics Program at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax. In the future, I hope to integrate artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning with psychiatric clinical endeavors, to improve the diagnostic accuracy of psychiatrists and improve the treatment of psychiatric disorders.

Practice Philosophy

My Approach to Therapy

I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy primarily, and also help patients to build their support network while they are in the process of recovery from their mental illness. I also utilize couples and family therapy techniques when the need arises.

More Information About My Practice

In my private practice, I focus on the diagnosis and treatment of anxiety disorders, depression, and ADHD. Although I have extensive experience treating severe mental illness such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, most of these patients I will not be able to treat, given I am a solo practitioner, and these patients need a hospital-based team.
