I am a solo practicing psychiatrist who specializes in addiction psychiatry with added qualifications in addiction medicine, psychosomatic medicine, and group psychotherapy. I am not credentialed with any third party payers, only operating as fee for service. Patients with insurance are provided documentation to help with reimbursement when requested. Medication consultation with evaluation services are available, but I continue to build a psychotherapy based practice.
Board certified in addiction psychiatry, addiction medicine, and a certified group psychotherapist, I provide a comprehensive, individualized treatment approach to patients with addiction and related problems. With additional certification in psychosomatic medicine and general psychiatry, I also have extensive experience in treating patients with anxiety, trauma, and depression without addiction.
I had attained the rank of Associate Professor of Psychiatry as faculty with the University of Louisville Department of Psychiatry, where I had resided for my entire career since finishing residency in 2001. My philosophy is that the foundation of successful is treatment is the physician patient relationship. When working with anyone, my goal is to become intimately connected to my patients in the service of their care. Group psychotherapy, individual psychotherapy integrated with medication management frequently provide the template or vehicle in this process.
