Robert Zalewski-Zaragoza, Psychiatrist  in San Diego
“I believe in a individualized approach to treatment. Although many patients may present with similar symptoms, the causes and context underlying those symptoms can be very different and thus the treatment plans are unique. Some patients may benefit from psychotropic medications either for a short period of time or for long term maintenance treatment. Others would gain more benefit from psychotherapy or talk therapy, where some of the root causes underlying the symptoms can be addressed and healed. The choice to use medications, therapy or a combination of both depends on the context of symptoms and the patient's wishes.

My technique emphasizes the talk part of therapy, and integrates the use of medication where this seems essential.
