Daniel M Podell, MD, Psychiatrist in Washington
I am a psychiatrist and psychotherapist who treats adults and older adolescents with a wide range of psychological difficulties. My treatment approach stems from both my medical/psychiatric background and my extensive training in insight-oriented psychotherapy. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to the individual needs of each of my patients. I work with patients to help them better understand the nature of the difficulties they have been facing, and identify and make lasting progress towards their personal goals.
I provide psychotherapy and/or medication treatment for adults and older adolescents. Some of the issues and conditions I address and treat include the following: depression and anxiety, relationship and interpersonal difficulties, work and career concerns, low self-esteem, attention and concentration difficulties, bipolar disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder.
Please note that I do not accept insurance. I do provide receipts that clients/patients can send in to their insurance companies on their own. For more information about my practice, please visit my website at: drdanielpodell.com
