Verified by Psychology Today Verified
"My approach to mental health is to treat the whole person with their unique qualities by evaluating both the psychological and biological factors involved. My focus is in medication management along with psychodynamic or insight oriented therapy where we examine together how childhood factors affect behaviors and emotions in day to day life. Being able to work extensively into developing insight, an ability to look inwards, actually helps us examine unconscious conflicts in order to foster changes in behavior, cope with stressors and to develop a better sense of self."
