Jeffrey Tuttle
Psychiatrist, MD
Verified
I am a licensed psychiatrist practicing psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, and psychopharmacology. I believe psychotherapy is an important but frequently overlooked treatment for many mental health problems like depression and anxiety. Psychotherapy and psychoanalysis help people address emotional problems and internal conflicts in order to increase self-understanding and freedom. Professional advice about personal issues or emotional concerns can be invaluable in confronting seeming roadblocks that prevent a person from experiencing a sense of emotional freedom. I treat older adolescents and adults.
