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

I am board certified certified in both general and child/adolescent psychiatry, as well as psychoanalysis. I have been practicing for over 35 years. I have written five books: the first three on the relationship between therapist, physician, and patient. The most recent, on working with complex clinical situations.

I have a strong preference for collaboration involving all mental health professionals. Accordingly, I created and direct the Center for Collaborative Psychology, Psychiatry, Medicine focusing on the integration of all three disciplines. My stance is distinctly patient-centered and personal growth oriented.
