From time to time, our lives take an unexpected turn for the worse. We may suffer injury; succumb to physical or emotional illness, or experience conflict, loss , misfortune. Trauma and chronic disability may affect our loved ones or us. Life adversities may temporarily overwhelm our ability to carry on. We may turn pessimistic, doubtful, and hopeless. Feel demoralized, worried, and anxious. Suffer sadness, distress, and anguish. Become angry and resentful. Feel distrustful and quarrel with others. Recognize our isolation and loneliness. At such times, we could benefit from a psychiatric evaluation and treatment, including psychotherapy and prescription medicine.

Our minds are a complex interrelation between our brain, other somatic systems, our social context, and much else about our environment. Improving mental health calls for a creative and adaptive approach that takes all these factors into account. Treatment works by building together a safe environment so that you can investigate the way your life experiences have led to certain ways of being in regards to yourself, relationships, and our sociocultural environment. Once you recognize these patterns, you can move forward with agency in order to live life in accordance with your desires, values, and sense of an authentic self.

Living with a psychiatric disorder is tough. Ordinary things that should make you happy don’t. Ordinary relationships become difficult. Even if you can see that you’re succeeding, sometimes you just can’t feel it. When you work with me, I’m in there with you: finding positive vision and hope, working week by week with what hurts. I believe that all experiences can be ultimately integrated, and inside that physical machine is a beautiful human being, aching not just to heal, but to blossom into full authentic function.

I am most interested in collaborating in a way that allows for optimal outcomes. How this takes form depends on your individual needs. A common difficulty people face is obtaining clear information from their doctor. It can be frustrating for the patient and for the family to receive information from a team of providers in a way that sounds like individual voices that are not in synchrony as opposed to a concise, cogent summary of the available information that affects decision-making.

Have you been blaming yourself for the actions, behaviors or even the emotions of other people around you? You may be feeling like everything is your fault, like you are just not good enough. You feel as though your worth is only based on how you perform in school or at work, the way you look, or how much you do for others rather than WHO you are? Maybe thinking that if you’re perfect everything will be OK, having the perfect body, being the perfect student, employee, partner, friend, child or parent. If you’re perfect you won’t hurt anymore, won’t be lonely anymore, won’t be afraid anymore.

Grief Psychiatrists
Grief and Bereavement is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
