Psychiatric assessment, diagnosis and care are best undertaken with humility and humor in all parties. Though the human condition often feels impossible and suffering unbearable, Psychiatry can offer help with these complex and vexing issues. I promise to do my best to communicate clearly and to listen diligently to your concerns and problems. Working with parents and their children is a special privilege for me. I enjoy helping people meet the tasks of becoming a parent and learning to parent their child. I have found that these challenges are among the most difficult that most people ever encounter.
The Hippocratic oath "primum non nocere" guides me in approaching and managing care. Medicines can be very therapeutic, but they are also potentially poisonous. Psychotherapies as well must be approached with mutually agreed upon goals and healthy skepticism. Few situations call for only medicine as the treatment of choice.
I believe that in taking on a patient I am establishing a relationship based on mutual trust and interest. The capacity of a physician to foster healing is only possible with this mutual trust as a foundation for further work.
