My services include a thorough evaluation, indvidualized treatment plan, medications management, therapy and patient education.
Because a wide variety of MDs and therapists provide treatment in the mental health field today, it is important to know the level of training and experience of the person treating you.
A psychiatrist is the only mental health provider who is a medical doctor and is the only medical doctor who specializes in mental health. Diagnosis is the key to treatment. A board certified psychiatrist gives you the best chance for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
I am well trained in the art of psychotherapy and my specialty in psychiatry is the science of psychopharmacology - the use of medications to treat emotional and behavioral disorders.
Research continues to show that the following disorders have a physical cause - imbalanced brain chemistry. The medications rebalance brain chemistry so the brain can function properly. If therapy is also necessary, it is usually more effecitve in cost and time after the physical illness is treated.
I specialize in the treatment of:
- Panic attacks
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Attention deficit disorder
In addition, my wife Ann and I offer sex therapy for couples.
