Mission statement: 

As an integrative psychiatrist, when I work with a patient, I look to see the whole person.  From that place, I help them explore their path to mental wellness by uncovering the mysteries that have been missed, and addressing mental, physical, social, developmental, and environmental issues.
Our ultimate goal is not just stability, but realization of full potential.  There is always a path, no matter how complicated or hopeless your situation might feel.

Centre for Life Los Angeles Office

New Office Location in Los Angeles!

I’m excited to announce I’m joining forces with an alternative healing center called the Centre for Life, located in Los Angeles in the Marina Del Rey area.  The new office is conveniently located near West LA, Venice, Culver City, and Santa Monica just off the 90W from the 405 freeway.

The Centre was opened by homeopath Avghi Constantinides and is serviced by acupuncturists, psychiatrists, a pediatrician, naturopaths, and hypnotherapists.  To better serve my patients with a holistic approach, I’ve begun preparing for an additional board specialty in integrative medicine (American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine).  Working closely with other alternative health practitioners allows me to both  further my education and refer patients for consultation in a convenient manner.

New Services: Along with micronutrient testing, I’ll now be offering neurotransmitter testing, food and chemical sensitivity testing, and hormonal and metabolic panels.  These tests help individualize supplement regimens, optimize treatment, and minimize psychotropic medication use.
