Many patients believe psychiatrists only prescribe medications, or that they treat mental illnesses but not patients. I am a very experienced psychiatrist, psychotherapist and psychoanalyst. I also worked for 25 years with hospitalized teenagers. I will listen carefully, offer expert support and guidance, and treat you as a whole, unique person with complex needs and wishes. We will work collaboratively to formulate your own goals, and I will help you meet them. I do prescribe medications, but only when it is necessary, and not without also offering you other ways of getting the help that you need. Licensed in Texas and California.
