"I consider growth and creativity to be the primary aspects of psychological health. When they are blocked, symptoms of a psychiatric disorder may develop. Anxiety and depression are the most common examples which I see my practice. I usually offer to prescribe medications to reduce the symptoms and to restore normal functioning. Further counseling sessions are then scheduled, either with me or with a therapist. This allows patients to develop new coping strategies which they can integrate into their lives. I particularly enjoy working with college students and faculty, health care and mental health professionals, performing artists, writers, and photographers."

Developmental Disorders Psychiatrists
'Developmental disorder' is the collective term used to describe the disorders, first diagnosed in a child's infancy or early childhood, which then become more apparent as the kids develop during their childhood and into their teens and adolescence. Like all labels, it means little and is open to interpretation.

The developmental disorders are categorized in to two areas: specific developmental disorders, which affect discrete parts of a kid's development, and the pervasive disorders (e.g. PDD 95501), which affect multiple developmental basics. The specific developmental disorders include communication disorders, speech and language issues, such as stuttering or lisps in 95501; learning disorders; and motor function or motor skills disorders, which may include tics or Tourette's in 95501.

The pervasive developmental disorders (PDDs) include autism, asperger's, attention-deficit and disruptive behavior disorders.

There are other issues that can affect childhood development, which are included in the developmental disorders--such as feeding and eating disorders, elimination disorders, separation anxiety disorder, and reactive attachment disorder.
