I promote a holistic approach to care. In providing care, I attempt to raise awareness of the individual's medical condition related to mental health disorders. Patients are educated on their disorder and the biological changes that occur. Each treatment plan is individualized to the patient. Interventions are based on best-evidenced base practice. People can recover from mental health disorders, leading a fulfilling and productive life despite their disability. For certain people, it denotes a reduction in the severity of their symptoms. I believe that treatment adds to the spirit of a person, instead of diminishing their spirit.

I prefer to work with people who are interested in pursuing treatment and taking their mental health into their own hands. My patients preferably have their own therapists already and are interested in supplemental medication management. Beyond that, I am very flexible as to individual goals and means of acquiring those goals.

I have a deep conviction about the importance and value of therapy, of taking the time to know your inner world and understand what may underlie symptoms, such as anxiety or depression, or repetitive problematic behavior, such as repeated failed relationships. Psychodynamic or psychoanalytic therapy approaches are particularly helpful in bringing to awareness such underlying patterns and their origins, so that it is then possible to change them. All types of life problems and diagnoses respond well to these approaches.
