"I find that life is a challenge for most of us. Particularly trying to achieve a happy peaceful life. The allure of self medication to deal with life's stressors is often a temptation. Just being human and living within our society creates obstacles to stress free living. We are complicated creatures and it has taken us many years of experiences and usually some trauma to become who we are now. I appreciate that engaging in a therapeutic relationship can be a delicate and difficult process and do my best to honor that."

"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."

Some psychiatric practitioners in Santa Monica specialize in age groups (so check for Santa Monica child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Santa Monica). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.
