I'm a psychoanalyst who works with adults, children, couples and families, and have a subspecialty in sexual difficulties. I have taught and written about issues across many areas of the life cycle, and am probably best known for my treatment and teaching about couple and family difficulties. Although I am a psychiatrist, I only prescribe for patients I treat with psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.

Psychiatrist, MD, DFAPA

Dr. Baum has a general adolescent and adult psychotherapy and medication management practice. I treat the “whole” patient, and have visits of sufficient length to know my patients thoroughly. I also focus attention on any ongoing medical problems. I encourage and incorporate exercise into treatment. I aspire to create an atmosphere that feels natural; if a patient prefers, we might have a walking session. When not practicing remotely, I have a therapy dog in my office. We can schedule a consultation to ascertain what your needs are, to establish a treatment plan, and to see whether I am a good fit for your ongoing treatment.

"No man is an island...", John Donne wrote. No woman, either. From birth, we depend upon relationships to give life meaning. But life sometimes leaves us feeling alone with our troubles. We may feel misunderstood, sad, worried, scared or angry. We may struggle with our direction, fall short of our hopes, suffer a loss. Yet our social connections are at the core of our humanity. That is why I believe talking can help to relieve suffering and create new directions. I strive to help by listening carefully and reflecting with you to better understand obstacles to a more fulfilling life.

I have had much success in helping patients along a path to better mental health and functioning.

You may be feeling anxious, depressed, fearful, angry, uncomfortable in social situations, or experiencing other emotional difficulties. Perhaps someone you care about is having problems. Although psychological issues can cause upsetting thoughts and feelings, physiology (body and brain) may also play a role. An evaluation with a holistic-focused psychiatrist can help you make sense of things and find treatments that work. As a Board Certified psychiatrist for 25+ years, I have specialized training and experience in recognizing and treating emotional and medical issues. My therapeutic style is active, collaborative, and solution focused.
