My approach is to understand and treat the whole person by recognizing their unique set of circumstances, conflicts, strengths, and background. I tailor treatment plans to each individual's unique presentation after careful evaluation of their biological, psychological, and social makeup. Such treatment plans integrate the latest evidence for the best treatments. Treatment recommendations might include psychotherapy, medications, and/or suggestions for lifestyle changes. I often serve as the psychotherapist for my clients but also enjoy serving as a psychiatric consultant to individuals engaged in psychotherapy elsewhere.
I prescribe medications judiciously and only after collaborative discussions with clients about their potential risks, benefits, and alternatives. I strive to implement simple medication regimens that minimize side effects. I base treatment recommendations on a state-of-the-art understanding of pharmacotherapy and rarely prescribe medication without also suggesting psychotherapy.
With psychotherapy, I have an integrated approach that is tailored to each individual's presentation and preferences. To varying degrees, I utilize both insight-oriented therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy.
