Caring for People
Medication Management is a collaborative process based on your symptoms, previous medication trials and many years of experience in multiple setting. We will work together on the full remission of your symptoms so that you can enjoy your life, your work and your relationships again.
I believe we all deserve the capacity to be fully ourselves. Medication, if necessary, can help us attain this capacity. The combination of psychotherapy and medications is the “gold standard” for the treatment of psychiatric illness. If you already have a psychotherapist, I will work with that person collaboratively to assure the most effective resolution of your issues.
My goal for your treatment is the resolution of painful symptoms, improvement in your quality of life and increased enjoyment and pleasure.
