A Unique Approach to Psychiatry and Medication Management
This is not the typical psychiatry practice.
This practice is not a “pill mill”. My clients see me, not a nurse practitioner or junior clinician. This is a high-touch practice, done right. I am available to my clients via text for emergencies, clarifications or quick questions and maintain a schedule that ensures my clients can be seen when they need to without excessive wait times.
I find that medications are often overused or misused and am devoted to not utilizing medications unless there is scientific evidence that they will help. Many Psychiatrists who identify as psychopharmacologists chase the latest treatment trend or experiment with off-label uses of medications. That’s not me.
Having been in practice for over 20 years I can share with you what other client’s experiences with these medications have been so you know what to expect and don’t have to rely on unscientific accounts one may read on the internet.
Clients often come to me because they are on too many medications and desire a simpler, healthier and more effective approach. Not uncommonly, I may tell a client that the reason they have not been seeing improvement is that the answer lies in therapy, not medications.
My approach is positive, empowering and collaborative. Treatment with me is not simply ‘you talking’. I am committed to offering psychoeducation and concrete tools and input so that you can enjoy a sense of efficacy and see results. Rest assured that most of the problems in our field are treatable, so there is ample reason to feel optimistic that help is on the way.
