I am a medical doctor specializing in promoting the mental, emotional and psychological well-being of children, adolescents, and their families. I work individually with adults, too.
I believe in seeing each individual as a whole person rather than just think in terms of a disorder. That means taking the time to do a comprehensive evaluation, getting to know the client and understand his/her situation as well as possible, and coming up with treatment options that are tailored to the individual.
That can often mean more than simply using prescribed medications, such as psychotherapy, parenting strategies, alternative treatments. If prescribed medications are used, I like to be careful and spend time talking about the rationale for their use.
- Evaluations – including for depression, anxiety, ADHD/ADD, autistic spectrum
- Psychotherapy including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Parenting Help
- Medication Management – for a variety of conditions
