For many people, the idea of taking medication can be frightening. I thoroughly explain my suggested medication, the rationale for such, and what to expect in terms of responses and possible side effects. At times it may benefit the client to augment with supplements. Some herbs can also be safely added.
With any mental health issue I believe the best outcomes can be achieved through healthy lifestyle choices such as exercise, good nutrition, meditation, and mindfulness. I encourage therapy and enjoy collaborating with therapists!
My general psychiatry practice focuses on AD/HD, OCD, PTSD, and women’s mental health. I also see people for other anxiety disorders, such as social anxiety or generalized anxiety, and mood disorders.
I can provide diagnostic evaluations for those interested in a second (or first!) opinion. This would include education, resources, and treatment options. There is never any obligation to start medication.
