I treat adults (18 years and older) in my private practice in Center City on Tuesdays and also work in an outpatient mental health clinic treating veterans at the VA during the rest of the week.
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.

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.

A Psychiatrist in Philadelphia is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Philadelphia Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. 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.
