I have treated a variety of psychiatric conditions since I have been in practice. The most common ones have been generalized anxiety, depression, panic attacks and ADD/ADHD. I also have a lot of experience with Bipolar Disorder, OCD, personality disorders, and schizophrenia. I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings and feel comfortable working with the entire spectrum of severity of illness.
Psychiatry requires understanding and compassion for the human condition and the adversities that come with it, as well as scientific knowledge of how the body affects emotional well-being. I believe one must address both biological and psychological factors contributing to one’s distress in order to treat the condition effectively, bringing about sustained relief.
I utilize treatment plans of medication management and supportive/insight-oriented psychotherapy to address biological and psychological factors in a person’s condition. I use cognitive-behavioral psychotherapeutic techniques to help a person modify behaviors and well-intentioned but sometimes maladaptive ways of thinking, thereby creating beneficial impact on mood, anxiety, and understanding of illness.
