There are many reasons one seeks help. The fit between the person and the clinician is the first step in the process of working on one's problems. Trust yourself to seek for those factors in the therapist that are important to you. Keep in mind that the art of medicine can not be taught but that the knowledge base and experience of the therapist has to be a required fundamental factor in your decision. The helping profession is composed by good dedicated people. What I want you to know about me is this: I practice what I do.

I focus on my patient as an equal and active partner in treatment. I conceptualize psychiatric treatment as a collaboration involving a process of two people thinking and changing what either alone cannot think or change. Overall, I have found medications can be, but are not always a first line choice for the individual. Psychotherapy has been relegated to the backburner as drugs occupy an increasingly pivotal role in patient care. I endeavor to find a middle road of plain old therapy, in addition to medications to help my patients find meaning in their lives and satisfaction in their relationships.
