About Dr. Sherwood Waldron

My hope and expectation is that my broad experience in helping individuals of all ages to find better ways to handle their feelings, relationships, and lives will help me to find a way to help you. Fully trained in child and adolescent psychiatry, it gives me particular pleasure to work as well with young people. I have spent many years studying what happens in therapy sessions and have become an internationally known expert on how, when, and whether patients benefit. I try to put that knowledge to use in every session. As a physician, I can evaluate whether medication may also be helpful in the short term while working together on problems that have contributed to your present unhappiness. My education followed by experience in child psychiatry and psychoanalysis has deepened my understanding of how meeting and talking can be helpful. We learn more from working with people than can ever be taught in a training program. And your feelings tend to be the best guide for us both. My clinical work has been evaluated by an international team of clinician-researchers at the top of the spectrum in terms of quality. I believe that our systematic studies have helped me to be more aware of how to be helpful. Medications may be helpful as well, although for many conditions, as a person makes changes to deal with problems in living the need for medications diminishes or disappears.

Wonderful and personable doctor, also very experienced as I sensed right away. Doctor that truly cares. Somehow I knew itintuitively even before the appointment, and it turned out to be a very good experience. Doctor knew exactly what I was talking about. Definitely would recommend him to people that need therapy.

Dr. Waldron is an extremely effective analyst. He calmed my anxiety and helped me figure out my self-sabotaging ways, and avoid them in the future.
