About

From time to time, our lives take an unexpected turn for the worse. We may suffer injury; succumb to physical or emotional illness, or experience conflict, loss, misfortune. Trauma and chronic disability may affect our loved ones or us. Life adversities may temporarily overwhelm our ability to carry on. We may turn pessimistic, doubtful, and hopeless. Feel demoralized, worried, and anxious. Suffer sadness, distress, and anguish. Become angry and resentful. Feel distrustful and quarrel with others. Recognize our isolation and loneliness. At such times, we could benefit from a psychiatric evaluation and treatment, including psychotherapy and prescription medicine.
In life, we pursue distinct goals and projects. Each person is unique, a concrete combination of personality, life-skills, and experiences. When we run into trouble, we do not lose our individuality; indeed, each faces troubles uniquely. Our treatment must fit our unique physical and emotional needs.
I am a physician, a medical doctor. Thus, I evaluate and treat both physical and mental suffering. My life's work has been to work with people in distress. My patients and I work together using psychotherapy and, as necessary, medications to master current adversity and prepare for future challenges.
