Are you feeling tired, can't keep up with your daily routine, emotional for no reason, dealing with overwhelming stress? You may be struggling with untreated medical symptoms. These symptoms can be treated with the guidance of a physician. "Let's talk and see what happens." I hope to keep things as open as possible, because not every patient will present with a textbook case of issues. I strive to find a way to connect with each patient in a way that respects their autonomy and dignity.

These are four basic requirements for feeling better: first, you want to understand why you don't feel well; second, you want to do what is necessary to feel better (liking what you have to do isn't necessarily required); third, you are open to the possibility that laughing at the absurdities of life is a really good idea, and four, you don't pay a fortune to expensive consultants in order to disregard their advice. I like to explain why I make any recommendations, and I like to whistle while I work (metaphorically speaking).
