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.

Sometimes couples work is helpful; sometimes more intensive analytic treatment is indicated.
I regard empathy, responsiveness, and respect for the patient as core therapeutic values. While I tailor treatment to the individual, as a psychoanalyst I place special importance on gaining insight about unconscious contributors to current difficulties. I also appreciate the importance of clarifying and resolving here-and-now problems. When appropriate I prescribe medications or work short-term. My style is collaborative rather than authoritarian. For many years I have taught psychotherapy and psychoanalysis to trainees in these fields. I also teach professional ethics. I have published in the major journals in my field and am a training and supervising psychoanalyst.

As a psychiatric nurse practitioner, it is my job to partner with my patients to help prevent, identify and treat psychiatric disorders.
Ideally my patient is as invested in their care as I am. They could have a variety of diagnoses but the thing they have in common is they are willing to give the process time, are open to new ideas, and know there is no magic pill to fix all their problems. My patients want to get to the best version of themselves and are willing to try therapy as well as medications to help them reach that goal. My patient wants an empathetic, listening provider who can guide their care based on the evidence, but tailored to their individual needs.

Problems include: relationship issues, couples , parent- child, employer- employee, major life changes, excessive worrying, stress, racial identity issues, sleep disturbances, moodiness, coping with lose of a loved one and grief.
Life is full of distractions, the expected and unexpected. Activities of daily living keep us from what we treasure most. These distractions cause problems in our relationships, at home, work, school and socially, disrupting the harmony between our inner self and the world around us. Talk therapy alone works in most situations. Talk treatments I use include psychoanalytic psychotherapy, insight oriented psychotherapy, supportive therapy and psychoanalysis. In some circumstances, the addition of medication is recommended and discussed.

As a psychotherapist, I help people recover and grow, guided by each individual's psyche. I draw on the broad and deep resources of depth psychologies, the body-based, scientific wisdom of medicine and psychiatry, and the many artforms that humans instinctively have created for millennia. My practice includes adults, couples , children, adolescents and college students-people who come because they suffer from anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, relationship problems, medical illness, parenting challenges, crises in mid-life, and creative and professional blocks. Many come with curiosity about new directions that their lives could take.

People often decide to see a psychiatrist because they are experiencing psychological or interpersonal pain. Because of this pain, they are unable to feel a sense of well-being or feel connected to themselves or others. Often, emotional pain results from unknown or unrecognized beliefs, conflicts, and patterns. When people are unaware of their feelings, thoughts, and actions, they may stay stuck in maladaptive ways of thinking and relating. Psychotherapy aims to help people develop a deeper awareness of themselves in order to relieve symptoms, enhance well-being, and develop a healthier relationship with the self and others.

I understand that having a good rapport with your psychiatrist is as important as the treatment itself. My aim is to help individuals explore their feelings to overcome the obstacles that lie in the way of gaining acceptance of themselves and reaching their goals. You may feel reluctant asking others for help, especially when it involves discussing personal issues with someone you barely know. I provide a brief telephone consultation at no charge to help new patients find out if we are a right fit.

I like to think I am best suited for treating individuals who are very sensitive and want more out of their lives, those who are seeking a deeper, richer life than where they find themselves currently. Identifying and changing those things that block emotional satisfaction is something patients and I work together on. Doing this allows my patients to make better emotional contact with themselves, with their loved ones and their life's work. I like to help patients identify what is healthy and what is unhealthy in their emotional and physical lives. Establishing genuine contact with my patients is the hallmark of psychotherapy.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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.

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. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Philadelphia Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
