About

Medications provide transient benefits for the majority of psychiatric issues. For optimal and enduring results, the combination of capable psychotherapy to foster insight with judicial use of supplemental medication to moderate distracting emotionality is best. Tragically, since psychiatric medications were introduced in the 1950's, psychiatrists have forgetten the unique experience of the individual and instead overdiagnose a few disorders and treat predominantly with medication. There are no magic pills. Any patient willing to do the work, can experience a positive change in their lives. (2) No insurance accepted.
Diagnostic precision matters. Treatment must begin with a thorough psychiatric examination. After two sessions of your earnest cooperation (approximately 3 hours), I will explain to you in a language you understand, your diagnosis, complete with any complicating factors, and the appropriate treatments for relieving your distress.
Therapy is a collaboration. No matter how motivated I am to help, nothing changes unless you are attentive, engaged, and motivated to follow through with living out what you learn and maintaining compliance. If you are serious about improving the quality of your life, let's get started!
