Frequently Asked Questions
Where do you practice?
In January 2017 I joined WomanSafeHealth (WSH), a unique Ann Arbor practice that specializes in empowering women's health care. This innovative medical practice and peaceful setting offers many services, including gynecology, general health care, obstetrical consultation, therapeutic massage, psychotherapy, Woman Advocacy, acupuncture and more.
What kind of issues and clients do you offer care for?
My outpatient integrative psychiatry practice at WSH offers care for issues of anxiety, depression, mood swings, trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), sleep issues, stress, fatigue, relationship issues, attention and concentration issues, life transitions, and health issues with a psychological or stress component. I am not able to see clients who may need a higher level of care, such as those who are actively suicidal, homicidal, have untreated substance addiction, active anorexia, have needed psychiatric hospitalization in the past year or who need a legal evaluation for disability, custody, or court-ordered treatment.
Due to the nature of the WomanSafeHealth setting, I am only able to see clients (age 18 and older) who are women, girls, trans and gender nonconforming people.
What services might you offer as part of an integrative psychiatry visit?
I offer a blend of evidence-based conventional, complementary and alternative approaches that includes functional medicine evaluations, careful psychopharmacology if indicated, psychotherapy, emotional/physical self-regulation therapy, and integrative "second opinion" consultations. To learn more about each of these services, please visit https://womansafehealth.com/services/psychological/
Are you accepting new clients? How do I schedule an appointment?
I am accepting new clients. To schedule an appointment, please call WomanSafeHealth at 734-477-5100. I also encourage you to visit womansafehealth.com to learn more about the philosophy of empowering WomanCare to determine if this is the right setting for you.
Are you fee-for-service or do you take insurance?
WomanSafeHealth and my practice are fee-for-service medical practices. You are responsible for paying in full at the time of service. Clients are welcomed without and with insurance. We will provide you a receipt at the time of your visit that you can submit to an insurance company for possible reimbursement.
