Voted Top Doctor of Psychiatry 435 Magazine, January 2019 by doctors. I will answer your call and schedule your appointment within 48 hrs of contact. I listen to you, am non-judgmental & help you gain self-esteem, exercise better choices & increase your happy hours. I have MD and PhD degrees from Duke University, School of Medicine when MD's were taught to treat with psychotherapy as well as medications when warranted. As Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at the University of Kansas, School of Medicine I've published widely about depression, bipolar disorder & anxiety disorders, panic, OCD & PTSD. Out of network, NO insurance accept

My specialties are accurate diagnoses of bipolar and depression with healthy stable mood maintenance. Primary goals are increased self-esteem & self-confidence. My clients benefit from long-term individual and group psychotherapies with medications prescribed as needed. I am especially experienced and skilled in diagnosing and treating bipolar disorders.

No INSURANCE ACCEPTED, sorry no MEDICARE/MEDICAID. I take payment ($500 first visit, $300 following visits), cash or check at time of service. Successful treatment with me is combination weekly CBT & insight-oriented therapy. It is in the clients best interest when psychotherapy and medication management are accomplished by one professional.

Charles Ray Lake's Groups

Yalom Oriented Group Therapy

My Group work is based on a teaching of Irvin Yalom, MD. It's one of the few, if not the only system to gain self-esteem and self confidence in learning to "speak up" versus "holding in" to improve the quality of human relationships.
