I am a general psychiatrist who works with a range of psychiatric problems, including
- anxiety disorders
- depression and bipolar disorder
- attention deficits
- problems due to medical and neurological illnesses
- chronic pain
- concerns about work and living a meaningful life
- life transitions, relationships and sexuality
The frequency of visits in my practice ranges from once weekly to every two months, depending on the focus of work. Initial visit last one hour; most regular visits are thirty minutes. I work often via telepsychiatry.
Most of my patients take some form of medication or supplement. While in the past I did a great deal of psychodynamic psychotherapy in combination with medication treatment, I am currently working primarily as a psychopharmacologist. Patients appreciate most the depth and accuracy of my diagnoses, which include a full understanding how medical, psychiatric, and psychological stresses contribute to life problems, and my comfort and flexibility with alternative lifestyles and philosophies.
