My main goal as a therapist is to establish a trusting, safe relationship with you. I aim to develop nonjudgmental, caring connections with each person I see. Although I am a psychiatrist and can prescribe medication, most of my practice, and what I most enjoy, is offering therapy. I understand that it can be intimidating and scary to try to find a therapist and that it can be hard to reach out during a difficult time. I do my best to help people through both the process of therapy and to face the challenges in their lives.

The type of people that come to my practice are disillusioned by the lack of quality care in the mental health industry. They want the best and have yet to find a doctor who can truly understand them. My patients are frequently leaders in their field, highly intelligent, and successful in some areas of their life but struggle with their mental health, relationships, and sense of well-being. I also see patients with complex psychopharmacological needs and mental disorders such as bipolar, major depression, addiction, and other severe issues that other doctors may not be comfortable treating.

People come to me with a wide range of problems, often not clear about why they are suffering. They may feel anxious, depressed, empty or confused; they may be having difficulty with relationships or work but not understand why. I will meet with you to evaluate what the problem is and how best to approach treatment. Why choose a psychoanalytically oriented psychiatrist? I believe that in a nonjudgmental atmosphere you will be able to explore why you are stuck in old patterns or feel unhappy in your life and relationships. I will help you gain insight so that you can feel freer, more confident, and happier.

What's missing from typical psychiatric care? * Care is typically boiled down to diagnositic categories while bypassing confounding personal issues * Clinicians tend to focus on the patient separated from the rest of his or her life. * Care is available only on a schedule. * Care is delivered by someone whose experience and interest covers only part of a problem. -- Mental health conditions don't exist in isolation. They are generally complicated by interpersonal issues involving relationships, family, school, or employment. They may require psychotherapy, medication, or both. My practice consists of psychotherapy, medication as needed, and medical consultation as appropriate

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

San Francisco 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 San Francisco has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for San Francisco child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in San Francisco). 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 (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in San Francisco, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have a MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. San Francisco Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
