"I focus on my patient as an equal and active partner in treatment. I conceptualize psychiatric treatment as a collaboration involving a process of two people thinking and changing what either alone cannot think or change. Overall, I have found medications can be, but are not always a first line choice for the individual. Psychotherapy has been relegated to the backburner as drugs occupy an increasingly pivotal role in patient care. I endeavor to find a middle road of plain old therapy, in addition to medications to help my patients find meaning in their lives and satisfaction in their relationships."
