My clients are very kind, offering me encouragement to do well. That's also true when they point out problems I can work on. When prospective clients see, I think it informs and invites them to decide: call or no. Susan, CA, July 24, 2022 wrote "I have not seen him In awhile but Dr Kron and his assistant Nan were incredibly kind, warm and Dr Kron has a great personality and sense of humor in addition to being brilliant. I had some unexpected health issues but am working on these. I certainly wish his rates had not increased so dramatically but supply/demand. Remarkable human being who helped me with severe anxiety at the time."

I am a Board-Certified Psychiatrist with a strong specialty in helping patients struggling with Depression , Bipolar Disorder, and Anxiety Disorders. I find Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive therapeutic tool that can play a crucial role for those with treatment-resistant mood or anxiety disorders. I take a holistic approach to patient care and treatment plans, considering biological, psychological, and social factors. I have found that being in tune with his patient’s emotional pain is the key to developing a good rapport.

My approach recognizes the practical necessity of diagnostic categories, but I also value and rely on the uniqueness of one's subjective experience to help guide the treatment process.

Depression Psychiatrists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression psychiatrists in Walnut Creek. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
