I was desperate on getting help for my friend who has PTSD and untreated ADHD for over 50+ years.
Clients will always have better perspective than I do re: do they feel better after seeing me. So, I.B. in S.F., CA. September 13, 2020 wrote "Dr. Kron is a great psychiatrist. My anxiety and depression improved as soon as I switched over to him. I highly recommend him to anyone who need psychiatric help." Erika W. April 30, 2018 notes "... I’m not surprised as not only does he have a vast knowledge of treatment options, but he cares about his patients’ lives (not just their symptoms). He has always taken time to make sure I’m doing well. Super smart, kind and great sense of humor – what more could you want from a psychiatrist?"

My goal when I meet a new patient is to understand what they are going through and what has affected their life. If I work with you or your family member I will try and understand your situation and history and will get a sense of how to shape modalities of therapy to help you and/or your family member to overcome the problems. I see a range of ages from children and adolescents to adults. Although every individual problem is unique, I have expertise in Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder ( ADHD ) in children and adults, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

I am a psychiatrist specializing in the treatment of adults and adolescents with addictions, mood disorders, personality disorders, ADHD , anxiety, and psychosis. I offer both medication management and psychotherapy. My approach to medications is a conservative one: I use medications (including Suboxone) only when patients have a full understanding of their risks and benefits, and I am willing to help patients taper or discontinue medications that provide little benefit, or which cause harm. At all times, I am eager to collaborate with other providers (therapists, counselors, alternative medicine specialists) to provide the optimal care for my patients.

ADHD Psychiatrists
Some children and adults with ADHD find it difficult to concentrate on tasks at school or work and may daydream frequently. Children with ADHD may become disruptive, defiant, or have trouble getting along with parents, peers, or teachers. Children who struggle with hyperactivity and impulsivity, in particular, often have behavioral challenges that can be difficult for adults to manage. Adults, on the other hand, may be more likely to report feeling restless or fidgety; if they struggle with impulsivity, they may make rash decisions that adversely affect their life. For both children and adults, executive functioning (planning, emotional regulation, and decision-making) is often affected as well. Many children and adults display either hyperactive or inattentive symptoms of ADHD, but it’s also possible for both sets of symptoms to exist together, in what is typically called combined type ADHD.

If you're looking for a Walnut Creek ADHD psychiatrist, these professionals provide ADHD therapy and counseling in Walnut Creek.
