The success of treatment has a great deal to do with the relationship between the patient and therapist. A personalized plan must stem from an understanding of
the experience and preferences of a patient, and be developed collaboratively.
Below is some information about my practice:
• An initial consultation is usually completed in one or two sessions. We discuss the history of your symptoms or concerns (both psychiatric and medical), any past experiences with care, and your perspective on treatment. This information serves as the basis for a diagnosis and plan for treatment.
• My treatment approach includes psychotherapy, psychopharmacology and psychoanalytic techniques. I generally find that medications are most successful when combined with talk therapy.
• My sessions are 45 minutes, although double sessions are possible.
• Sessions can be for an individual, couples or families.
