Practice Goals

I aim to provide the best possible evidence-based psychiatric care to clients.

Clients are invited to determine their care needs and together we create treatment goals guided by a comprehensive management plan. Treatment includes state-of-the-art medication therapies, counselling, and as appropriate, psychosocial rehabilitation.
