After careful diagnosis I put specific focus on problem solving, primarily with therapy, directed at ameliorating debilitating symptoms on a timely basis. Longer term therapy is directed at repairing personality vulnerabilities to prevent recurrence of disability. When psychotropic drugs can help I prescribe and carefully monitor them. My patients choose: short or longer term therapy.
I am board certified with nearly four decades in treating adolescents, adults, and geriatric patients.
My areas of special expertise include:
* Treatment of Depressive Syndromes
* Bipolar Disorder (without Lithium)
* ADHD (without stimulants)
* Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
* Family Crises
I provide excellent referral for drug and alcohol abuse. Whatever the diagnosis I direct my umbrella effort at self esteem consolidation and maintenance.
