"I take a lifestyle approach towards healing and strengthening your mind. Recent neuroscience demonstrates quite clearly that nutrition, exercise, stress-reduction, and effective psychotherapy can rebuild your brain and upgrade your mind. I do use medications when they are needed - though I use them judiciously to provide relief and comfort to you while we continue to work on optimizing your lifestyle. I love what I do and my main goal is that eventually you won't need me anymore and can send me an email once in while letting me know how much better your life is. That is what I strive for. "
