Video Game Addiction Psychiatrists in North Carolina (NC)
“The decision to see a psychiatrist is not an easy decision; however, it is often a decision that can dramatically improve the quality of a person's life. Mental health issues rob people of their peace of mind, their joy, and their ability to reach their full potential. I evaluate each unique individual in a holistic, comprehensive manner encompassing all aspects of their life. I aim to get to know each of my patients personally so that I can provide the best treatment for that individual. Good psychiatric treatment is a process. Treatment begins with an initial appointment.
“Mood impacts the whole person, from their thoughts and emotions to their family life and physical health. Today, full recovery is possible, and there are many effective treatments to choose from including therapy, medication, supplements, light-box, and dietary and lifestyle approaches. Many of the therapies we specialize in are designed to work for particular problems, including CBT and Mindfulness for depression and anxiety, CBASP for chronic depression, EMDR for PTSD, Coaching for ADHD, Social Rhythm Therapy for Bipolar and Behavior Therapy for OCD. We also provide therapy for families, couples and specific therapies for sexual difficulties.
“My Integrative Psychiatry practice in Carrboro, N.C. serves children, adults, students and the university communities of UNC and Duke. I offer psychotherapy and a holistic approach that blends traditional psychiatry with complementary modalities. With a background in the arts, psychoanalysis, and Zen teachings, I offer dynamic psychotherapy for adults, play therapy for children, and family therapy. I blend nutritional supplements with conventional medications and specialize in non-pharmaceutical treatments for the emotional and behavioral challenges that may arise in childhood. I work extensively with adolescents and college students, and have a particular interest in the developmental transition to adulthood during college.
“Sometimes, our best efforts leave us feeling stalled. Personal initiative and the energy that we apply to serious challenges will fall short of relieving true worry, anxiety, depressed mood, fatigue, insomnia, and other symptoms. At the root of it all may simply be that what had been working fails us now. The medical specialty of psychiatry emerges as an essential ally when treatment options come from a thorough evaluation in concert with your primary care physician, psychologist, therapist, alternative medical practitioner, or trainer for an integrated treatment plan. As a psychiatrist, my goal is your sustained, long-term health.
“I am a friendly, open and nurturing psychiatrist practicing in a comfortable, polished office space near Duke. I am board certified in General Psychiatry as well as Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and treat a wide variety of disorders in people of all ages. I provide comprehensive evaluations, pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy. I also provide medication management for individuals who currently have a therapist, and will communicate regularly with that therapist to provide the most comprehensive, individualized care possible. I have extensive experience treating people with eating disorders, depression, anxiety, panic, OCD, PTSD, personality disorders, bipolar disorder and psychotic disorders. I look forward to hearing from you!

“It has been 40 years since I began practicing Psychiatry. For the past 33 years my practice has also included Psychoanalysis. Psychoanalytic thinking considers a person's development, dreams, and unconscious life. It deepens the evaluation and psychotherapy whether sessions are once a week or four times a week. Therapy is a joint undertaking for both the patient and therapist. It is an adventure and challenge. The therapist and patient are affected and changed by the process. It allows for a deeper emotional understanding and appreciation for who a person is; and how much more a person can become.
“You want to talk, I want to listen. Life can become overwhelming; it contains many moving parts. Sometimes we all need help sorting out problems and creating solutions. Talking in a safe place with an objective listener is a proven therapeutic experience. All of your conversations will be kept confidential. Your issue may be related to unexpected events or experiences and emotions that have been causing you discomfort for a long time. I want to hear where you are and what you need. The therapeutic experience is a cooperative relationship where we work together for your benefit.
