You need help, but are unsure where to turn. Wary of doctors, suspicious of drugs to which you think you could get "addicted," unbelieving that anyone could know you well enough to help. You may already be taking medicine, but aren't convinced it is the best one for you, or even helping at all. As a clinical psychologist and family physician trained in psychopharmacology, I apply an unusual and broad background to help identify and clarify what is "stuck" for you right now. Discovering ways to feel free of anxiety, depression, anger or hate is our business together.
You just want someone to listen without deciding ahead of time what you should do or giving you useless answers. You know something is not working, but need someone to guide you through your own journey, a compassionate, wise listener who really wants to know what you have to say.
Please be aware: You will not automatically be "put on" medication after one consultation. We will go through a comprehensive evaluation to create an initial treatment plan that helps you feel heard, safer, and hopeful. Follow up and maintenance of your progress will depend on your needs and preferences.
