My passion is helping people with DEPRESSION. I want my patients to feel empowered because their symptoms leave them feeling powerless. One of my most important roles as a psychiatrist is to instill hope for my patients. Depression is treatable, and with TMS therapy along with medication management, we have even more options for patients who struggle.

Psychiatrist, MD, PhD

I am interested in the thoughtful integration of medication, psychotherapy, and mind-body practices in achieving emotional well-being. My approach is practical and ranges from concrete problem solving to deep emotional healing work. In other words, I can often be "one-stop shopping" for mental health issues. I can work with a wide range of issues such as attentional problems, mood disorders, relationship issues, and issues of "finding one's way in a stressful, confusing world." I work with adult individuals and couples. In all cases, I consider warmth and humor an important part of treatment.

Philadelphia Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, MD
Verified
I am a board certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist who works hard to practice psychotherapy and psychopharmacology in both a private & supportive setting. While I strongly believe in pharmacologic interventions backed by empirical evidence, I am a firm believer in the value of therapy & more holistic interventions (exercise, diet, meditation, mindfulness). I understand the importance of shoring up wellness rather than treating illness, and you can expect to spend a significant amount of time discussing the importance of sleep, fitness and nutrition, in addition to tackling deeper psychological issues.

It is not uncommon to find ourselves somehow off track and disconnected from who we thought we were. Our relationships may seem stuck and deeply unsatisfying. We feel lost and unsure of our place in the world. This may be accompanied by feelings of depression, anxiety or as physical problems. Even as parents, we can sometimes sense difficulty in our children’s lives. Our child may not be developing the same as his or her peers, or may be struggling to keep up in school. Many times, we are unsure of where to turn for help or may be embarrassed to seek advice from other parents for fear of alienation.

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, CRNP

I specialize in the mental wellness of children (Ages 5-17) and their families (parents/caregivers) who may benefit from mental health services via their own individualized treatment or additional support in areas such as coping, stress management, and parenting support. I view the family as a system-events such as divorce, death, incarceration, illness, etc., affect each member of the family in a unique way. Often, the focus of treatment is on the children due to acting out behaviors, or a decline in grades. But what about the caregivers? Parents often neglect their own mental health. My solution is comprehensive family care.

How do we sort out problems of living? How do we formulate who we are and who we want to become? How do we develop loving satisfying relationships? How much are these questions of the mind and to what extent are they about the biology of our brains? As a psychiatrist, these are the questions that have shaped my clinical practice for over 25 years.

Better understanding our relationships with others and with ourselves can allow us to develop new and healthier patterns. Understanding how your thoughts, feelings, and mood influence each other in less helpful ways (e.g. exacerbating symptoms) is a part of then being able to make positive change. I believe that medications, if indicated, can help improve quality of life and functioning. When considering potential benefits, I also strive to help you weigh all options in the context of your own personal goals, preferences, and possible ambivalence around taking medications. Often this is in conjunction with individual therapy.

Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Philadelphia has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub-specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Philadelphia, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified.
