I excel in healing depression, anxiety, attention/focus, sleep, and weight problems. I know the proper use of medications and know how to get you off medications you do not need. Overall I treat the whole body and mind by enabling patients to return to a natural balance in life. Many physical symptoms including pain and metabolic disorders can also be treated by addressing brain health. Not all drugs are good or beneficial and having a doctor who played a role in researching and developing the medications you may take is to your advantage. I offer these services generally three days a week.

Teletherapy Psychiatrists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Stuart, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Stuart listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
