My Approach

I am a practicing psychiatrist with expertise in treatment-resistant cases across a broad spectrum of diagnoses. All too often, people have more than one diagnosis, so focusing specifically on one set of symptoms is often fraught with limitations. I have extensive experience with psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and complementary and alternative treatments.

When it comes to using the ketogenic diet in the treatment of psychiatric conditions, I support comprehensive and coordinated treatment by a multidisciplinary team, grounded in medical science. It is not just about food. This treatment incorporates medications, medical monitoring, diet, and support.

Elements of my treatment approach include:

  • Medical consultation and evidence-based recommendations
  • Medical management and oversight, including:
    • Appropriate laboratory values, weight, regular glucose and ketone levels
    • Symptom rating scales and periodic evaluations
    • Management of adverse effects
    • Medication monitoring and adjustments
  • Dietician
  • Meal planning
  • Education
  • Coaching
  • Fitness training (when desired)
  • Meal preparation and delivery service (when desired)

As a consultant, I coordinate this multidisciplinary effort and work in conjunction with patients and their families, the treatment team, and other medical professionals.
