I am a board-certified psychiatrist in private practice for over 35 years, I treat patients from college age through adulthood for a wide variety of issues,
including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, feelings of inadequacy, relationship problems, and work and career difficulties. My psychothrapeutic approach is eclectic, with a basis in psychodynamics, tailored to what would best treat the presenting problems most effectively. I integrate the use of medications, where clinically indicated, with the psychotherapeutic process to help relieve painful symptoms and emotional distress.
When first meeting I feel it most important to do a thorough assessment, gathering a great deal of information about the patient, both present and past. This enables me to arrive at an understanding of the presenting problems and difficulties and to discuss the best approach to treatment.
