You shouldn't have to wait months to see a psychiatrist or settle for a provider who's not a good fit. You deserve someone who shows you they care about your future. I have immediate openings and can meet with you virtually in the comfort of your home or office. I'll listen to your story and work to understand the important details of your situation. I like to provide an atmosphere of warmth, humor, and acceptance during your visits. Regardless of whether you've taken psychiatric meds before, I can help you examine the alternatives and decide what might be best. Medications might even assist you in reaching your therapy goals.
