Choosing a therapist/psychiatrist is hard. Let me introduce myself. I am a working mother, spouse, and physician. I understand the challenges facing women and men today. As life becomes more stressful and as we do less to take care of ourselves, problems are likely to emerge. I see adults with Anxiety/Depressive Disorders, Marital/Relationship/Employment Difficulties, and other Life Crises. I focus on present-day coping strategies and on bettering your understanding of the way your difficulties are related to overall life history. I do intensive work with people who want to improve their self-understanding, define goals and lead more productive lives.
My approach is eclectic. Including psychodynamic/cognitive-behavioral/family and couples therapy. I offer a private/comfortable/supportive and empathic environment. Patients appreciate my "no-nonsense" and firm approach. I am an expert in psychopharmacology and prescribe medications only when necessary. The dual approach of medications and therapy has shown to promote more immediate and substantive relief for my patients.

I've been receiving therapy from Dr Stridiron for over a year now. Our family is very familiar with the process of therapy and have seen our share of quacks. Dr Stridiron is one of hhe few doctors that actually chose the right profession for her. She is understanding but honest and very professional. Also, one of the few psychiatrists in the area that does both therapy and medications, which I think is detriments to progress.
