"You can fulfill your dreams." This comment often opens the flood gates of negative emotion. Observations of the tremendous pain, the fear of self disclosure and the fight against the stigma of a brain-related illness guide my philosophy of patient care. Mental illnesses are not character weaknesses or a punishment for perceived bad behavior. A solution to feeling out of control starts with both the awareness and acceptance of a chronic health condition. Mental illness is not a choice, but the response to the condition is highly personal.
Acceptance of a brain related condition is scary. My role is to support my patients in successfully achieving their greatest life potential with their best brain. As a psychiatrist, I support conversations and make suggestions that can assist my patients in the often painful journey to recovery.
Patient advocacy and empowerment are ongoing factors in my clinical practice. As an award winning book author ("The Pregnancy Decision Handbook for Women with Depression"), my goal is providing tools for emotional development. My website, www.Mindsupport.com is the success and lifestyle resource for the highly stressed.
