Although carefully chosen medications can quickly achieve much needed relief of anxiety, depression, insomnia and trauma symptoms, a thorough evaluation can also identify many opportunities for improvement without medications.

When needed, medications with the lowest side effects, easiest to use, most predictably effective & not addictive are recommended.
