I specialize in adolescents and adults dealing with the gamut of mental health issues, from substance abuse, schizophrenia, Bi-polar, trauma, anxiety, ADHD, depression, to situational factors arising as part of the human condition. I'm trained in traditional medicine but have expanded to integrate significant findings from Positive Psychology, nutritional and lifestyle approaches, neuro-scientific interventions and mind-body medicine. My 38 years working in-patient and in private practice has afforded me a wealth of experience. I have the utmost respect for those I work with and am not afraid to put my heart into what I do.

For depression and anxiety, research supports both talk therapy and medication for optimal treatment.
I provide talk therapy and medication management, as needed. Together, we can learn about how your mind works and put words to feelings that you have. We can also work to identify patterns which may be holding you back and potential shifts which may improve your feelings of efficacy. As you increase your self-understanding, you can find a deeper sense of purpose in your life and more meaningful connections in social and professional relationships. I also provide a sliding scale fee for an intensive talk therapy.

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 Towson. 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.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Towson is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Towson Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Towson has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for Towson child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Towson). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Towson, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have a MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Towson Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
