In my practice, I understand that there are often concerns, worries, and even deep fears regarding psychiatry and psychopharmacology. This is why, along with a wholistic philosophy, I take a “start low and go slow” approach to medications, paying special attention to the medication potency and potential interactions with other medications prescribed by other providers. I also believe “knowledge is power,” so together, we spend significant time on education and explanation so that you understand the recommendations provided and you are fully comfortable with the treatment plan which I always provide in writing for your reference.

Gambling Psychiatrists
A compulsive gambler or a pathological gambler is someone who is unable to resist his or her impulses to gamble. The urge to gamble becomes so great that tension can only be relieved by more gambling.

There is a very fine line between problem gambling or Washington gambling addiction and gambling too much. The critical sign of problem gambling is often hidden from awareness, with denial. Many gamblers in Washington typically do not know they have a problem. Admitting you have a problem, or may have a problem, is the first step to recovery.

Treatment options include individual and group psychotherapy, and self-help support groups such as Gamblers Anonymous (a 12-step program for gamblers). Abstinence principles that apply to other types of addiction are also relevant in the treatment of compulsive gambling behavior in Washington.

Recently, medications such as antidepressants, opioid antagonists, and mood stabilizers have been shown to be beneficial in combination with gambling treatment by a Washington gambling psychiatrist or gambling psychiatrists in Washington or those experienced with gambling behaviors in Washington.
