While I am not taking patients at the moment, I do keep a waiting list. I practice a personal kind of psychiatry that is disappearing in the era of highly managed psychiatric care and the fifteen minute medication visit. Even managing medication for a patient seeing another therapist, my follow-up visits are all 25-45 minutes, and I remain interested in the big picture of each patient as an individual human being who I am helping to get better and move ahead in his or her life. I have to remain in touch with what is going on in the lives of my patients, rather than merely tallying up symptoms and writing prescriptions.

People turn to psychotherapy for many reasons. Some are motivated by challenging or unexpected life events, such as a death or loss, a breakup or a divorce. Others struggle with work or relationships, life transition, or a vague feeling of dissatisfaction. Psychotherapy provides an opportunity to explore these experiences in order to understand and resolve them. In today's busy and overstimulating world, it is easy to disregard our needs, which can leave us feeling depleted. There is little time for self-reflection and introspection.
