Dr. Kass believes that optimal psychiatric care begins by hearing a patient’s history and understanding his or her goals for entering treatment. There are no algorithms for mental health care; Dr. Kass believes treating mental illness and optimizing patient well-being depends on formulating patients individually and tailoring treatment to meet their unique goals and needs. Psychological distress, whether it be experienced as depression, anxiety, social withdrawal, insomnia, irritability, or emotional numbness, is often due to multiple environmental, social, and psychological factors.
Dr. Kass uses his initial visits to help patients understand the factors contributing to their experiences, then works with them to best address these factors and treat their symptoms. If medications seem necessary, they should make up only one part of a more comprehensive treatment plan.
Dr. Kass believes in treating clients holistically through a combination of talk therapy, lifestyle optimization (sleep, diet, exercise, etc), medication management, and mindfulness. Dr. Kass will use these various techniques to help you feel better, optimize your wellbeing, and achieve your goals of coming to treatment.

Dr. Kass is a gentle, kind, and compassionate psychiatrist. I know it can be so tricky to find a psychiatrist that has both the expertise of a doctor and the warmth of a therapist, but Dr. Kass embodies both. Highly recommend.
