Psychiatrist, MD
You're a successful, accomplished, busy person encountering more stresses lately. Now you're feeling strained, anxious, distracted, angry or moody. While normally you push through your difficulties all by yourself, this time it's different. You realize you could actually benefit from some professional help but your personal pride and self-reliance make this a big step to take. You also wonder: "How could anyone possibly understand everything that's on my plate?" I'm an experienced psychiatrist from the so-called Golden Age of Psychiatry, where we learned to bridge two seemingly different approaches, the psychological and biological.
