A Board Certified Psychiatrist will help you choose from treatments such as CBT, brief-psychodynamic therapies, or DBT , either as the primary modality or in combination with evidence-based pharmacologic treatment.
At Sound Body & Mind Psychiatric Services, we recognize that both emotional and physical factors contribute to the development of psychiatric symptoms. Genetics, environment and specific stressors or traumatic events can also play an important role. Finally, an individual's character, personality, temperament, and resilence all contribute to the clinical picture, and can shape the types of symptoms we see and the prognosis. No two individuals are exactly alike and therefore, no two individuals experience psychiatric symptoms in the exact same way. This is why we create a unique treatment plan to target your specific experience.

I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, motivational interviewing, and psychodynamic techniques.
Struggling with medical problems (or the medical system!) can cause depression and anxiety, which can make it even harder for your body to recover. I specialize in treating disorders related to the mind-body connection and have a great deal of experience with patients suffering from serious medical illness, such as cancer, organ transplantation, heart disease and diabetes, neurological disorders like MS and seizures, autoimmune diseases, and thyroid and other hormone disorders. My preference is to work in a team, not only with my patients and their families, but also with other physicians and therapists.

Dialectical (DBT) Psychiatrists
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is the treatment most closely associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Psychiatrists practice DBT in both individual and group sessions. The therapy combines elements of CBT to help with regulating emotion through distress tolerance and mindfulness. The goal of Dialectical Behavior Therapy is to alleviate the intense emotional pain associated with BPD. Its core assumption is that change and acceptance are intertwined. We typically think of our efforts to change things as emerging out of non-acceptance. We either decide to accept things as they are or we seek to change: through DBT it's not a case of change or acceptance, but resolving the conflicts to allow for self-acceptance and constructive change.
